A birthday card for Ryan

Here is a card I have made for Ryan who loves barbecues and can't wait for spring and summer weather so he can have them.
I have followed the sketch at Willow sketchie this week. The star backing paper is from Dovecraft Masculine paper pack. The image is a High Hopes rubber stamp called Grillin Joseph which I have coloured in with different shades of blue Promarkers . The light blue card on the left has been embossed using my Happy Birthday Cuttlebug embossing folder. I have done some faux stitching around the edge of the image and the embossed backing piece of card.
The stars have been cut with an X-cut die on my Bigshot. The letters to spell Ryan have been cut with my Quickutz alphabet. The ribbon was a freebie from a magazine. The square blue gems are from Papermania.
