Birthday Card for Male Using Art by Miran Gentleman George

Hello friends. I can't believe it is so warm here in Southern CA.  I know other places in US have had a lot of snow; especially the East Coast.  The weather is very unpredictable!  I will be glad when I feel well enough to go bike riding again.  I had a couple eye surgeries that were not supposed to be painful; and they are very painful.  I was told that the last one should heal in a couple weeks; but at one week, it doesn't feel like it is improving.  It hurts all the time.

It's time again, for another fabulous Art by Miran Anything Goes Challenge 51.  I created this card using a new adorable guy digi.  I hope you enjoy him as much as I do.  I kind of got carried away with the cars. LOL!  I thought he deserved at least 3 of them.  I always have such a time creating guy cards.  I decided to go bright and bold with this one.
