Back from my Rhine Cruise

We went on a fabulous river cruise up the river Rhine last week, starting in Amsterdam and finishing in Basel. We had a wonderful time and made lots of new acquaintances. The food was amazing and there was an open bar, so this week we're back on a diet before the next sortie!
This is a paper pieced card using a fab set of stamps which I bought at Ally Pally, I can't remember the name of them, although I've a sneaky feeling that they may be Dylusions... I'll have to check with my friend Anne, as she bought the same set. I think they're terrific and are tailor made for this technique.
I used scraps from the drawer for the clothes and also found a little set of There She Goes clear sentiment stamps, which until now had never seen ink.
It's for Dynamic Duos Colour challenge of Grey and Black with the added element of being for a chap.
It's also for the Casual Friday's challenge for a birthday card.
