Another Birthdaycard for a Boy

Tonight I have another Boyscard to show - trying to make a few of these, to have in the box for future use, but I never seem to get on top when it comes to maculine cards...
Finding papers and colours to colour the image for this card I felt quite brave - orange and blue; cool, or what?!? Looking at it finished I don't think it looks so bright as I figured it might get...
I used papers from deep down in my papershelf, probably bought years ago. Image is Magnolias Edwin - I love this plastered little guy. I coloured him with ProMarkers (Wonder if the card would have looked brighter if I'd let him wear blue shorts...)
I tried to make the sentimentcard into a plaster, coloured it with chalkinks and embossed plasterpattern on it, then stamped the birthdaygreeting on it.
From a ribbon I cut three little banners, that I attached with brads.
Inside the card I used a Martha Stewart PATP to make the panels, then put white cardstock onto them, to make space to stamp a greeting and write a personal message.
All edges are Distressed, using DistressInk Pumice Stone.
On the back I used my personal stamp, and the same ribbon as on the frontside.
Challenges:
Sunday Sketch & Stamp - Sketch
I Love ProMarkers - 3 Different Papers
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Anything Goes
NSHK - Maskulint

I hope you'll like the card, and that you've had a pleasant stay at my place ;)
