Cards for Men Challenge #14 "Happy Birthday"

Good Morning everyone, I do hope that youve all had a enjoyable weekend, the weather as usual has been difficult and I hope those that have suffered the worse are getting help to sort things out for themselves. Anyway this fortnights challenge is being sponsered by Di's Digi Downloads.
Im not sure what the prize is at the moment but Im sure you will be able to find out on the Cards for Men Challenge blogspot.
As the challenge theme is Happy Birthday I decided to use a Lili of the Valley image.
 And I stamped him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die No.1 to cut it out and a larger one for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a paper I found in my stash, I believe its a Wild Rose "All about Man" paper pad, and then the piece of card I used down the card has been put through my cuttlebug with a start embossing folder. The sentiment was one I created on my computer and then printed and cut out with a circle die, and then mounted on a larger one out of pale blue card.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope you will go and visit The Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for you, and hopefully they will inspire you to take part in this "Happy Birthday" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered into the following Challenges:-
