Here's my take on the sketch...

I tried to incorporate elements from both the sketch and the photo.  I flipped the sketch on it's head so instead of the small element on the bottom right side of the card, it's on the top right. 

The new Chatterbox Journal Card die was perfect for this sketch.  I put the superhero image on the large die cut and the sentiment on the smaller quote bubble that comes in the set.

I added the reds, blues and dots from the inspiration photo.  I even added a few dots (freckles) on the cheeks of our man!  I had a little trouble keeping the laces completely clean when I colored them red.  As a little "cheat" I used a white gel pen to get them clean again. 
The little wood stars from Studio Calico seem a bit more masculine than sequins or enamel dots.  Not sure DH would agree, but that's my story and I'm sticking with it!
