Masculine - use buttons and string

Hello everyone.
It's time for another Challenge over at TeddyBo & Co. This time it's masculine a card for the boy's which must include  buttons  and string.
My mum wanted to see Bo in a string (lol) " she just cannot behave herself."
I thought Bo in his suit of armour fits the title of masculine so that was what I decided on.
I followed a sketch which I found in Cardmaking & Papercraft.
I have coloured TeddyBo_110 with Polychromos pencils  and added three Blue rhinestones to Bo's sword. I used Anita's rhinestones.
The backing card I used is Woodware recycled craft card  and the paper's are TeddyBo & Co I love these papers, they are so detailed. The scalloped circle behind Bo is a Sizzix die that I cut with my Bigshot machine I have also used the card  and paper for inside the card. Once all the card and paper was in place I cut Bo out  and adhered him to the card with sticky pads.
I have used natural jute craft string from Ebay  and the woodern heart shaped buttons are from Fantastic Ribbons.
The wording I have computer generated is old english Font 22.
I hope you like my creation.
Thank you for letting me enter.
Big hugs.

Here is my knight in shining armour.

Here is a side view of the card.
