Birthdaycard for a Footballboy

I never seem able to make up a little sortiment of birthdaycards for boys, to have ready when the birthdays come. I will try again this year - this is my first, and I have planned a few more already, so maybe I'll make it this year...
This (first) one is made as a joy-fold-card. I placed a magnet between the cardstock and the DP on the imagepanel and on the bottomoverlay to make it close better.
I have used an image from Motivet "Dexter with soccer ball" - it is such a long time since I've used these cuties, I'd almost forgotten I had them.
I coloured Dexter with ProMarkers (in our teamcolours :D), then, over the brown, furry bodyparts I put on some brown "Crushed Velvet" (bon bon flock from doodlebug design inc.)
I've tried to take a close-up of the image, I hope Dexters fur shows better here:
Because it is a card for a boy, I tried to avoid too much glitter, bling and stash, but a few rhinestones, in perfect colours for the card, cried to go with it - LOL
Inside the card I plan to use the black spaces on top for age and name of the birthdayboy (I have some leftoverscraps of the DPs used on the card, which I plan to cut letters and numbers out of with a cuttlebug-alphabet)
I used the same sketch, from Sunday Sketch and Stamp, on the middle part of the inside. On the lower part of the inside I made a pocket where we can put some money.

I'll enter this card into the following challenges:
