Men's Jacket card

This is a simple birthday card I made for my cousin who had an great party at a 5th Avenue Penthouse in NYC.  Had the most amazing views of midtown Manhatten.
I found a few tutorials on Youtube to make this  card.  I did add two buttons to the jacket after the pic was taken.  No coloring, I used papers from DCWV.  I did add some simple stiching.  I cut a small pocket and inserted a ribbon.  I made a simple bow tie with the same ribbon.  This was very easy with just a few folds for the collar and a pattern paper for a vest.  .  It's best to use double sided paper.
I also used a few white buttons down the shirt placket.  I did use my Martha Stewart embossing powers and some letter stamps to add his name.
I am entering the following challenges:
