Birthday Plaid

Good morning folks, time for a new challenge at Cardz4Guyz.
This time we would like to see your masculine cards that feature:-


Here's my card for your inspiration.

My starting point was the plaid DP from NitWits and the cute digi image from LOTV, Big Gift.
I was looking for an image for my Grandson's birthday and remembered this that I bought awhile ago. He comes in 3 different forms but I used the simple Big Gift Boy Alone. He reminds me of the comedian Harry Worth, if you are old enough to remember, who used to approach a glazed corner of a shop and raise one of his arms and legs. The effect was that he looked as if all four of his appendages were moving at once! Hands up if you've tried that when you were a kid, I know I did!!
This is a fairly simple design, I placed the digi to one side of a square on the computer and printed him off. I don't have the skills or programme to add details to the image so they are either die cut, freehand or stamped. Once coloured with Copics, I fussy cut part of the little boy and cut the square using my trimmer adding the lines and stars to match.
The NitWits DP was trimmed to size and added to a 7 x 7inch base card and the coloured, stamped panel was added on top with foam pads.

That's it from me but please check out the rest of the DT for more masculine inspiration and then why not join in?
