Another 21st card

Here's another card for my cousin's 21st birthday - I've already made one for us to give him, this one is for my mum to send.

I've used a downloaded 'mikey' image from Charmed Cards & Crafts, coloured with promarkers. The papers are MME with coredinations and bazzill cardstock - Donna sent me the dotty bazzill (along with lots of other lovely goodies!) from her shop Donna's Den to celebrate my new DT position on her new challenge blog (starting 1st Dec!) Cards For Men. The '21' is computer generated, printed onto a Nellie Snellen circle die, buttons from stash with some thread tied through one of them.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
I've also noticed that I suddenly went over 5000 hits at the weekend - this has crept up on me slightly, I'd been planning some candy for this 'occasion' - I'm sorting some out now, so hopefully I'll have it on here soon :o)

Wonderful card, I love everything about it. Like most cardmakers I struggle to make cards for men unless they are into sport.
Thanks for playing along at CCC this week.
