Blurghhhh!!! Mens Cards!!!

I'm sure you all feel the same way sometimes! Cards for men are sooooo boring, no bling, no flowers, no glitter!!! I could go on!
Well this card is for my mate's (lou) hubby Ady & I will say I had fun making it. I have had this image from WOJ for an absolute age, it was a freebie digi ages ago & I did the usual, printed it off & stuck in my draw marked 'digi & stamped images' & there it stayed until yesterday when I decided to get super hero Henry out & have a play!!!
I am still sruggling to sit still for more than about 10-15 minutes so this is a really simple card maybe even C&S???? What do you think? LOL.....

He is such a cutie, I can't believe I've not used him before!!!
I just want to thank Hazel (dido) & her mom for helping with the colours LOLOLOL!!!!
