Card for a 14 year old lad

One of my great nephews has a birthday this coming week and I admit that I'd put off making a card because I was short on ideas. He plays golf, so I'd already done a golfing card for mum to send. In the end I've used some paper that has lots of 'masculine' images and made a focal point of the stamped sentiment, stamped on to toning paper and layered up.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Pile it on 8: sending happiness
Dream valley 26: just for men
Sentimental Sundays 90: let's get sentimental
Aud sentiments 48: include word happy
Kaboodle 106: where the boys are
Creative card crew 4: masculine
Use it Tuesday 25: it's a birthday party
Do you stack up 59: layers
Just for fun: sporty for a man
Cardmakin mamas 39: happy birthday
Hotshot craft 4: one for the boys
Wags n whiskers 73: masculine birthday
Stamps R us: anything goes
Mema's crafts February: anything goes
Penny's 73: anything goes
If the shoe fits fashionista Friday 99: anything goes
