Spots and Stripes

I made this card yesterday but I've just managed to get a reasonable photograph of it today.  The card blank is a large square from Craft UK and the backing papers are from First Edition paper pad Desert Blooms. The red card is by Ross Paper. I used my Texting Josh image that I won on the Ladybug Crafts blog. I coloured Josh with Promarkers before cutting in to a rectangle and matting on to a red rectangle. The black mobile is cut, from Mirri board, with a Spellbinders die. I used a red button from Create and Craft and tied it with baker's twine from Creative Expresssions via Joanna Sheen. 

I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
 Ladybug Crafts - Spots and Stripes
Always Crafting - Anything Goes
Paper Makeup Stamps - For the Boys
Karens Doodles Challenge - Make it for a male
Love to Create - Masculine
