The Greeting Farm - Masculine Birthday Card

Last night, I got a burst of creative energy, at about midnight, so, instead of ignoring it, I crafted!
Here is the card I made - 
I didn't particularly want to sit an colour, so I raided my coloured images that had never made it onto a card, and found this little Greeting Farm dude, I looked at him, then went through my stash of patterned papers (mostly offcuts) and came up with the dark brown back ground paper, the green plain paper and a small piece of yellow paper. I believe these are all from Echo Park. I keep all offcut pieces of patterned paper, especially if they are half a normal card size, or more... 
I layered everything up, did some doodling and then attached my little dude using dimensional adhesive. I added a paper clip, some washi tap, a button and a trio of enamel dots. 
Here is the close up -
