Put your best tie on!

Morning Folks!
Long time no see, but I'm back again with my card for the new challenge that is starting over at Sweet Stampin' this morning. Our theme this time is 


Here's my card, very CAS and not at all like the original idea in my head! The papers are Chateau Stripe by Chatterbox Inc, I bought several double sided 12" x 12" sheets several years ago but sadly this is nearly the last of them - think this might qualify as my favourite 'masculine' paper ever!! 

The stamp is 'Dressed Up' by Penny Black - another one that has been 'rescued' from Ebay - yes my addiction is getting worse but who could resist that little face??
Here's a closer look, coloured with promarkers and then fussy cut and framed with a nesties die cut background:
