Birthday Card for my Dad

Here is the birthday card I made for my Dads Birthday on 28th April. Happy Birthday for the 28th Dad, have a great day.
He moved out to France about 6 years ago so when I saw this Lofty french themed stamp set I knew I had to buy it to make a card for him. Isn't french lofty cute.
I have used Promarkers to colour the image in. I have stamped the word Bonjour in black ink on to the white piece of card along the top. I have faux stitched around the edges of the image, the flag and the bottle of wine/glass image.The lovely spotty ribbon was bought at The Range, I think it was Anita's. All three images have been stuck on with 3d foam to raise them off the base card.
I am entering this card into the following challenges
