Bugaboo Birthday Party - May the fours be with you

And this is the 6th card for the Bugaboo weeklong birthday challenge.
The design was at first inspired by the Digi Sketch Challenge sketch, then I started to alter the layout, and the card ended up only fitting their masculine theme.
All DPs are from Maja Design's Christmas Collection - I just love these papers, so perfect for other occasions as well, it's all up to which side of the paper you want to use!
My idea here was to use a paper as background that would work as a wallpaper and a texture that would resemble a carpet.
Gus has been colored with Promarkers and his armchair is paper pieced. I added glossy accent to his glasses.  You can find Gus here. The image comes with a fun sentiment, but I used one in Norwegian instead. My elements of "4" are card candies.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Catch The Bug -May the fours be with you
2) Totally Papercrafts #203 One for the Boys
3) Digi Sketch Challenge - Sketch and/or Theme "For Men"
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
