A Card for Kennys Challenge

Good Morning Ladies, this card started out for the Kenny Challenge and along the way Ive found a few more and I will list them at the bottom, anyway this weeks Kenny Challenge is Blue, White and Silver and Ive used this new image that Ive not used before for a Birthday Card, Ive coloured him in blue and shades of grey, then used my Labels 10 to cut him out and create a faux mount for it by drawing around the die then cutting it out by hand. The sentiment is one from Hero Arts and it was mounted in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of dark blue card and one of two papers from Donna's Bearlymine Downloads, they both have stitched borders, the first one a pale blue one, and on top is a dark one and I cut this into a stripe and punched the edges with a hole border punch from Martha Stewart, its a bit like swiss cheese, two rows of holes.
On top of this is a strip of silver mirri board thats been put through my cuttlebug with a dot matrix embossing folder, and Ive then placed my mounted image on top, and the sentiment at the bottom on the left, Ive also stuck a football button in the middle.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
