Basketball Birthday boy card (Bugaboo image)

Hi to all my crafting buddies,

Today I've created a card using a Bugaboo image, how adorable is he for boys' cards and he was really fun to colour too! I did a little faux stitching again, I love doing that when I feel a card needs a little more oomph to it hehe. I also inked all around the papers so give it more of a boyish grunge look.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
