A birthday card for Joe

This is my DT card for Cards for Men which I'm very late posting.  It's going to be a birthday card for my Nephew, Joe, who's 10 at the end of the month.  Hopefully he'll like it.

We have a fab challenge over at Cards for men this time.  The theme is 'Boys & Their Toys' and the sponsor is my good blogland friend, Claire, from Hope Jacare.  The prize is 3 digis of your choice.  If you haven't seen claire's work before, pop over now and have a look.

Also pop over to Cards for Men where you'll get all the details of the challenge and you'll get to see the wonderful cards made by all my teamies.

My card base is a 6" square from Craftwork Cards (so is the Red Card Candy).  The backing paper is DCWV - Boys will be Boys.  My image is Skate from Hope Jacare which I've coloured with promarkers.  The mounts are Cajun Craze from Stampin Up and that's it I think.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Pixie Cottage - Sketch
Whimsy Inspiration - #21 Happy Birthday
Digistamps 4 Joy - #34 aquamarine/turquoise
