Penny Black Saturday #155!

Afternoon all! Just a quickie post for this weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge, a couple of weeks ago we had cards for the Girlies, now it's time to make A Card for the Guys! With Fathers Day coming up hopefully it'll come in handy or it can just be for any male! There's a really cute stamp to be won too!
Here's my card, I thought I'd get a bit inky and try making a background with distress inks. Liz gave me some tips but I didn't have any watercolour paper and was too impatient to wait until I could get some so here's the result with normal copy paper, I'm quite pleased but I need more practice! The stars are stamped and embossed on. The music notes paper is also a stamp, and this is the first time I've tried the ribbon scrunching but I like it!
It's for these challenges-
I {heart} 2 Stamp - this sketch - flipped. (I also doodled the square part of the sketch to simplify the card)
