Pink Gem DT Card - Going Green

I'm delighted to say that I've joined the talented bunch of ladies who make up the Pink Gem design team!  I'm really looking forward to working with Janet's lovely images, I've been a fan of them for ages as they're such fun to colour and the designs are so sweet.  Our theme this week is "Going Green", and without further ado, here's my card.

I've used an image called Beer Monster, you'll find him in the Pink Gem store here.  He's been coloured with Promarkers and I think he makes a fun card for a man.
I used a Stampin' Up stamp to create the beer tankard backing paper and continued the green theme with some corrugated card and some Papermania  patterned paper.  I broke up all that green a little with the addition of some foiled purple card, which my camera didn't like, it looks much richer in reality.
I used some knotted purple grosgrain ribbon instead of my usual bow as this one's for a bloke and stuck on some stars made from glossy green card using Xcut dies.  Some green shimmer dots and purple Card Candi to echo the spots finish my card.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Card Crafter's Circle - #72 - Boys to Men
CRAFT - #204 - Make Believe,  Fantasy etc
The Paper Shelter - #109 - One For The Boys
The Stamping Chef - All Boy

Tuesday Throwdown - #144 - Make Your Own Background, I stamped mine
Sketch 'n' Stash - #112 - Sketch
Eclectic Ellapu - It's In The Stars
