Happy Birthday, Sexy!

Are you ready to see a rootin' tootin' birthday card?!

I made this card for my friend for his birthday, using the Mae Western image, from KennyK. I colored this sexy vixen with my Promarkers. The metal frame is Hodgepodge Hardware from Stampin Up. I used two patterned papers, star shaped buttons and sheer blue ribbon from my stash

Don't you just love all the layers?! And the pink and blue color combo is perfect for a masculine card.

A teen boy would probably love this card!

This is my first time making a center step card, and I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

I did have a slight mishap, though. The darn ribbon came loose on one side when I took the pic and I didn't notice it till I went to watermark the pic. I've since fixed the loose ribbon, but didn't take a new pic, sorry.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
