A Card for the Sugar Bowl and Sugary Sunday Challenges

Good Afternoon Crafters, I do apologise for not posting recently Ive got to admit Ive not been feeling upto doing much crafting as since having my colonoscopy last week Ive been suffering rather badly from being sore in the neither regions so you can understand why I really havent felt like making cards. Anyway I did get around to making this today with one of the Sugar Nellie images that I bought in 2009 and naughty me Ive not used it since I bought it, and Fiona's son is 21 this week and the challenge over on Sugary Sunday is all about mens cards so I took it as we were supposed to make a birthday card for a man/boy so this is the result.
The image is "Guitar Boy" and Ive stamped him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a Nestabilitie Die to cut it out and a larger one for the mount. The Sentiment is a Whimsey button stamp and its been cut out with a button die.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of dark blue card, and the papers are from Sweetshoppe Digi Downloads and this is called "Circus Burst" I thought the colours appropriate for this image. The first is a white background with circles on and the second is a blue embossed one and the third is a triangle banner one.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
