"Peter Pan"? & simple masculine card

I finally seem to be getting some mojo back. I had to make two cards this week which were a real effort to make (I even considered buying my first cards in 6 years), but once I had made them it seemed to inspire me with ideas for more - bit ironic as I'm going away for a few days now, so no crafting for me for a week lol. 
I made this card as my youngest's card. She was in the panto Peter Pan recently,& although I thought this character was Robin Hood, she immediately thought he was Peter Pan! (Peter Pan's panto costume was quite similar)
Green isn't a colour I often choose to work with, but it suited this image. (Green never was my fav colour, but as a teenager I went to stay with relatives for a week, & on my return found my Mum had done my whole room, inc dressing gown, sheets, curtains, walls, lamp shade, tissue box cover out in green cos she liked it - not something I really appreciated!)
Close ups of ribbon threaded through Marianne die cut piece of card, & image.
Edwin iamge coloured with Promarkers
Papermania papers, cardstock & gems
Edge of EK success punch used on brown cardstock
Ribbon from stash

Here's the other card I made. Sentiment & shadow cut with Scal on Cricut
2 different ribbons from stash (one over the other)

I'm off to watch my youngest daughter in a show soon, but hope to have a quick catch up with some blogs in between washing & packing tomorrow.

Tfl, & for any comments you may care to leave.
