Happy 50th Birthday

Hi everyone, I'm here to share a card I've made for a friend's 50th Birthday at the weekend. He's a decorator so I thought this stamp was appropriate, it's a Daisy and Dandelion one...

I used a sketch from the Sketch Saturday Challenge but didn't have chance to post it in time so I can't enter that...never mind. The background is made up of squares of red, white and blue card, arranged on a square of black card. I've coloured the image with copics and cut him out with a circular Spellbinder. I've matted this on a scalloped circle Spellbinder using black card. I've finished off with peeloffs from my stash.

 I would like to enter this for the following:-
Inky Impressions - Let's hear it for the boys 
Fab'n'Funky - No patterned paper 
Anything Goes - Animals 
Crafter's Companion - Birthdays 

Thanks for looking. I hope to see you again soon.
