I've Taken a "Viking" to You!

Another 70th birthday card for my Dad, this one's for his partner to give him.  She's getting his DNA analyzed for his birthday present, something he's always wanted, and, as he's a quarter Norwegian, there's a good chance there will be a good dose of Norse DNA in there, hence the viking themed card.
 The image is actually a kid's colouring page I downloaded free, it's been coloured with my usual Promarkers, and attached to the card with a spring for movement, so my marauding viking actually marauds!
The stepper card was made from heavy weight brown card using a B-C-E template, I used Kanban, Mechanica papers for the matting and layering.  Both the sentiments were computer generated.
To embellish, I added some knotted twill ribbon, gold mirri Card Candi, and brown pearls.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
