A birthday card for a good friend

It is one of mine and my husbands birhtdays on on Wednesday and this is the card i have made for him. He has actually already had it as we celebrated his birthday yesterday :) The image is one I won from the Greeting Farm a little while back now I am really liking this little dude.
The paper is from the Basic Grey cupcake collection and the blue backing paper is from the paper cellar. The sentiment is hand stamped and then mounted on to the blue card stock. I have coloured the image with copic markers as always and have shaded around the outside of the image in C1 which i think although you can't see it brilliantly in this image, in real life really makes the image pop. 

I have used string to wrap around the card and make a little bow as I think this always looks a bit more appropriate for male cards :) we actually bought this for my cats to play with but I am sure they don't mind sharing. 

I hope you are all well out there in blogland. I have been busy making 2 more cards today and still have another 2 made that I haven't posted yet. I am hoping to post another one this week but at the moment most of my time is taken up training for the great eastern run on the 10th October. I am running the half marathon in aid of Sue Ryder Care if you would like to sponsor me please follow the link on my sidebar. Any sponsors are greatly appreciated and I know will really help push me through those 13.2 miles. 

I am entering this card in to the following challenges; 

Copic creations - Shading in and around the image
Daring Card makers - there's something in the air
The secret crafter - Anything goes
