Die Cut Dreams - Stars and Stripes for a Boy

Well it is Monday again and you know what that means don't you?  That's right it's time for the new challenge at Die Cut Dreams.  Firstly let me just say thank you to all those who entered our last challenge wow were there some fabulous Orange and Hot Pink creations.  Remember to call in at Die Cut Dreams and see if you were either our lucky handpicked winner or one of our handpicked top 3!!
So this week our challenge is one that I know alot of people struggle with and that is to make a card for a Boy using stars and stripes!  Male cards are just one of those areas that you either love or you don't and I have to admit I'm not mad keen on male cards.  But, it is a challenge so here is the card I made:
The image is one of Mo Manning's and I've had him coloured in for ages and not got around to using him.  He is coloured with promarkers and watercolour pencils. 
The two DP's I have used are again from Summer Driggs and called Freedom Ain't Free.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from an Ooh La La CD called Passion for Fashion.  I added three blue self adhesive stars from my stash to finish it off.
Please remember to stop by the rest of the DT (links on the Design Team tab at the top of the page) and have a look at their wonderful creations.
Can't wait to see what you all create this week, have fun!!
