Army man card

Evening all :)

For the second night in a row, my beautiful half-wild rescue cat Scraps who has never settled in the house before is asleep on the couch beside me! She climbed in through my craftroom window and made herself quite comfy! The poor kitty, she's very jumpy and usually gets so nervous when she's inside, we think she must've been locked up and chased before we were lucky enough to get her :( Here's a photo of her asleep on the couch :) 

Anyway, that's enough about her, here's my card :) I made it for my sister to give her boyfriend and he's in the army, hence the soldier theme. I also tried to get a hint of green, white and orange in there for the Irish flag hehe.

The image is Bugaboo, the sentiment is a stamp I found in a charity shop, the gems are from stash and the papers are from Nitwits. 

A closeup of the image, coloured with Promarkers, and there's Glossy Accents on the parachute and Stickles on the clouds :)

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thanks for looking :)
Nighty night
