Men, can't live with 'em, can't shoot 'em!

I find it so difficult to make cards for boys/men,
so I am always on the lookout for 'guy' images.
This snowboarder is a terrific freebie I found at Bird's Cards

I started out, as I usually do, with a plain white panel to fix to my card base. 
I think in future, I need to attach this panel with foam tape, 
to give everything a little more depth.
I stamped some random, pale blue snowflakes
and added a strip of DP and my sentiment.

The snowboarder is coloured with Copics, fussy cut and 
attached with foam pads.
I also added a touch of glossy accents here and there.
