Birthday fun for Gabe

I'm sure many crafters out there are of the same mind as myself -- boy cards are a bit of a challenge, as all the really cute embellishments are too girly to include on them.   This daring skateboarder is a stamp from Stampendous (entitled Skateboard Kiddo), that I've colored with prismas.   I've personalized it, adding Gabe's name, using my old red Sizzix and alphabet die cut set.   Otherwise, it's just layering and adding the corner punch and sentiments that I've used foam behind to give them their 3-D appearance.
I have entered the following challenges:

Allsorts - sport
Catch the Bug - AG
Crafty Friends - man/boy
Crafty Sentiments Designs - AG
Cute Card Thursday - AG
DigiStamps4Joy - AG/special birthday
Penny Black and More - for the boys
Send a Smile 4 Kids - birthday 4 kids
The Paper Shelter - summer birthday
