A simple guys card!

Hello, here's a simple card for a guy (thought I'd better be pc after all?!).  It's the first time that I've used an image from a Personal Impression set I got last year.  I couldn't quite figure out how to colour dirty blots on the cloth though but never mind, I'll keep trying!  I'm quite pleased as this is the first time that I've managed to leave a piece of clothing as white.  It's always scared me as whenever I see other people's white garments they also look perfectly shaded but I could never do that but I've given it another try.  This is a small A6 size card, not the norm for me hence I couldn't do much with it so I gave it a turn back fold and planted him slap bang in the middle of it!  I used a tiny little sentiment which I overhung also.
Hope you are all having a lovely relaxing Sunday evening.
