FILs 80th

Exactly one month after my Dad's 70th will be my Father In Law's 80th birthday, this is the card I have made for him...

I started with the sketch, provided by Seize the Birthday challenge blog, who also want us to make a masculine card too.
The image is a Pollycraft one, and is called 'Maurice- Daddy Cool'.
Maurice is coloured with promarkers.
The kraft base card was stamped with a few number '80' and I used SU markers to crosshatch the pattern within them. Then faux stitched around the edge and around the image with the chocolate chip marker.
As you can see, I used my argyle embossing folder on the blue piece.

I'd like to enter this card at:
