Masculine Card using Center Step Card Base - Card 2 of 2

Hi Everyone!  Hope this finds you all doing well and having a great day!
As promised, today I am showcasing the second of two masculine birthday cards using a center step card base.  If you haven't seen the first one, refer to my previous post. 

Today's card features a darling little boy flying his toy airplanes from Lili of the Valley.  Isn't he cute!?!
The image was stamped on cream flecked cardstock and colored with my Letraset markers. 
For this card, I decided to stamp the focal image and cut it out in a diamond shape.  I popped it up with dimensional tape on its mat and then mounted it atop another square mat in coordinating patterned paper.  I added epoxy stickers to either side just for fun and wrapped the matted image with ribbon and a metal ribbon slide that says "happy", since this little fella is thrilled to fly his toy planes, lol!
For the inside of the card, I used additional coordinating patterns from the same paper pack to stamp my sentiment.  I then added some little flags along the side to spice things up a bit, as well as some faux stitching.  Here's a closer look...
To finish off the card, I stamped my logo, matted it and adhered it to the back of the card.  Of course, I added a bit of faux stitching with my white gel pen.
And that is my card for today!  I hope you like it. 
Thank you for joining me today and I hope to see you again soon to share another card!
