What's Up Doc?!

What sort of card do you make for a thirteen year old basketball player?  Well, after much thought and trawling for images, this is what I came up with.  The image is a clipart freebie and has been coloured, as ever, with Promarkers.
I really struggle with male cards, as I know most guys don't like heavy embellishment and heavy embellishment is my middle name!  I manged to keep this one fairly simple, opting for a monochrome colour scheme with a pop of orange to highlight the basketball on the image.
The tickets were made with Kanban stamps and star border punch is Martha Stewart.  Some zesty orange knotted ribbon and Card Candi are the final touches.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Crop Stop - #77 - for kids
Do You Stack Up? - #77 - inspired by a movie, I went for Space Jam
Shelly's Images - anything goes
Crafting for all Seasons - #29 - male
My Mum's Crafts Shop - #62 - boys
Cards For Men - #13 - sport with a sentiment
