Focus, Please!

I've made this card special request for a nephew for his son. School started recently and, as is often the case these days, there's some bullying going on and my great nephew is feeling the brunt of it. My nephew wants to give him some encouragement.
I originally went to Hambo to check out their freebies. lol I was just looking! I did find one and while I was browsing... I saw this one and light bulb moment! I love those! Don't you?
My great nephew's school colors are red and black and my nephew is starting to gray so I tried to keep the hair true to form. lol I hope he sees the humor in it and likes it as much as I do! I believe it came out so much more way fun than I originally thought it would!
It's an easel card:

Card Recipe:
Image: Camera Guy from Hambo Stamps
Image colored with Copic markers, silver gel pen and Glossy Accents
Foam tape to pop up image from card base
Plain card stock and rhinestones from my stash
When I first thought to make a star burst pattern behind the image, I thought myself rather clever... until I started cutting. :\ It was quite horrific. The thing is... I've made one before... right here... for the life of me... I cannot remember how I did it the first time... although... if memory serves me right... I may have cried then as well. lol 
Thanks for stopping by!
