DT Card for Lexi's Creations Challenge #66 'For the Man/Boy in your Life'

Another black themed card for me (not required for the challenge). A little to much  beige as it fools the camera and I had quite a time getting the exposure down to something acceptable. I am just learning how to use the Copic flesh tones so there is some experimentation going on here! I like it anyway:)
