The dreaded mans card

Hi girlies
It's wet, windy and miserable here so I've been hiding in my little craft room having a little play with me stash lol
Anyway, after having a browse through the challenges this is my creation. I'm not sure whether or not I like this to be honest but hey ho it's made now and it covers five challenges!!

The image is from Dustin Pike, isn't this pelican cute? I love him although I'm not sure I did him justice with the copics. I really need more colours and loads more practice. Papers are from Funky Fairy's and the little brad I had in me stash.
