New Gem of a Challenge - Birthday Card for a Boy

We've got a new Pink Gem challenge today on the Gem of a Challenge Blog and this time we're asking you to make a 'birthday card for a boy'.  You can find more details about the challenge and see the cards from the rest of the Design Team here on the challenge blog.

For my card I've used the 'Andy with Skateboard' digi stamp which you can find here on the Pink Gem website.  The paper I've used is actually from a Dovecraft Christmas paper pack but I thought it was perfect for the digi and for a boy's card!  I've added some die cut corners and gems to finish the card.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

I Love Promarkers - 'hobbies'
Simon Wednesday Challenge - 'it's a guy thing'
Creative Card Crew - 'for a child'
Digistamps 4 Joy - 'bingo' (die/punch, free (image), your favourite thing (kraft paper))
Scrapbooker PhD Challenge - 'masculine birthday plus die cut'
