A Card for a Friend

Good Morning Everyone, sorry Ive not been around much over the last couple of weeks but you know what they say "must needs and the devil drives" Im been busy with all my DT work trying to get ahead and also arranging something special for December, and of course weve had the problems with Missy so my priorites have been those first, so sorry and I will try and remedy it I promise.
Anyway todays card has been created for a neighbour and as hes always taking the mike out of me I felt that this Bugaboo image was just right for him with that sentiment should bring a smile to his face, or at least I hope so. Ive printed the image onto white card and then coloured it with my copic pens then used the large Rectangle Die from Nestabilitie I also use the larger one for the mount, the sentiment has been treated in the same way the mounts have been created with blue pearlescent card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and for my first paper its one of three from the Papermania Men paper pad, its an all over sentiment pattern on a blue background. The second paper used is red and white stripe and the third a dark blue pattern, these two were placed in an angle pattern, and the mounted image was then positioned towards the right hand side, and the sentiment was placed on the left.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
