Nephews Birthday Card

Hi everyone, it's my nephew Joe's 13th birthday on Valentines day and this is the card I did for him.
I don't think I do male cards very well and I am not entirely happy with this one - not enough Pink!!!!
Anyway I followed the sketch at Paper Sundaes shown below.

See told you there isn't enough Pink!!! The background paper is from a Creat and Craft Cd Triple Treasures. The blue papers are are from Funky Fairies and Core'dinations. The tag is from a Summer Driggs kit called Happiness and the sentiment was a freebie from Funky Hand. I have distressed most of the papers with my Tim Holtz distresser and ink. The image is from Dustin Pike and is coloured with my watercolour pencils. Oh and the name was made with some freebie letters.

I will also enter this card in the following challenges

Papercutz Challenge - Teen Birthday,

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Digi colouring,

Paperplay Challenge - Birthday card for someone special,

Charisma Cardz - Think Male,

Quixotic Challenge - Tag It,

Crafty Cardmakers - Digital elements,

Kaboodle Challenge - Spots and stripes, and

Magical Crafts Challenge - Something for the kids.

Hope you like the card more than me!!! Also hope Joe likes it.
