Cards for Men - Challenge 10 - "Someone Special"

Good Morning everyone, yet another fortnight has gone by and here we are at our tenth Challenge and my fellow team member Sarah of http://rainmacsplace.blogspot.com/ has chosen the theme of "Someone Special" and this time we are being sponsered by Digital Delights.
And they are offering you a fabulous prize of 3 digital stamps of your own choice. And here is what they say about themselves:-

Welcome to Digital Delights, a magical place filled with my little digi creations from all walks of life. We have a wide range of digital stamps which are delivered straight to your email 24/7!! http://digitaldelightsbyloubyloo.com/


And here is my card for this Challenge:-
As team member we were given several images to play with and I chose this Teddy Bear one for my card, and have printed him onto white card then used my copic and tria pens to colour him, then I used a circle die from Nestabilities to cut him out and a larger one for the mount, I also used some glossy accents for the balloons. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way as my image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with several papers from two Paper stacks Wild Roses for Men, and the Forever Friends, they went together so well that I felt they were the best choice. The first one is a white base with brown and blue checks on, the second is a blue check and the third a stripe, then for the last one is a brown and white check, a little different from the usual one. On top of this I positioned my mounted image with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I have used three blue buttons of different sizes and some bakers twist threaded through the holes and knotted, these were stuck down the right hand side of my card at the top.
Now youve seen my card I do hope that you will pop across to Cards for Men Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talent Team Members have created for you, and hopefully it will inspire you to take part in this fortnights challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
