The Greeting Farm and Stampin' Up!'s Up Up and Away! create a Masculine Birthday card

Hi guys, we had a power outage for a little over an hour today, so, armed with a couple of challenges I'd written down earlier, and a bit of inspiration, I headed into the craft room....
So, this is a Basic Grey card base, which I have layered with papers from My Minds Eye and a piece of Always Artichoke Denim Ribbon (I think it looks more grey than artichoke) and the set aside the card base. I took my colours for this little guy from the patterned papers, and coloured him with Stampin' Write Markers and my Blender Pen (on watercolour paper), I then cut him out. I cut out a square of Whisper White, stamped the sentiment which is from Up Up and Away, and then layered it on to some Poppy Parade. I put a whole bucket load of dimensionals on the little guys back and stuck him on to the card base. The card looked a little unfinished, so I dug out 3 tiny red rhinestones and rounded the corners. 
I am entering this into three challenges :) The first is the Anyone For Anya recipe challenge - 3 patterned papers, 2 embellishments (ribbon + rhinestones) and 1 image, next up is the sketch challenge from Card Patterns, it's been a little while since I played over there, but loved this sketch, and had to play. And finally, the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.
