Male birthday

I really struggled to find a suitable image for my brother's birthday card this year and hope this one fits the bill!

Image and sentiment from Bugaboo coloured with promarkers and background done with DI, papers are from Raspberry Road and have been distressed with my distressing tool (image and papers being used for the first time). Finished with some ribbon from my stash.
Inside has been decorated to match.

Challenges entered:
Kaboodle Doodles - where are the boys
Digital Tuesday - use your stash
Crafts and Me - distressed
Southern Girls - so distressed
Stampin for the Weekend - blues and browns
Wags n Whiskers - male birthday
Sundays with Chrissy - happy birthday
