A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Male Birthday

It's challenge time once again at A Gem of a Challenge, this week our theme is "A Male Birthday Card", we'd like that to include a birthday sentiment as well please.  The Pink Gem shop has plenty of masculine images, for boys and men of all ages, I chose to use this cute football playing teddy, who I think would be perfect for an age, young or old.  You'll find him in the shop here.
 He's been coloured with my usual Promarkers to match these Papermania, It's a Man's World papers.  I kept the layout quite simple as it's a male card, following the sketch from Sketch and Stash.  The sentiment was stamped with a Papermania stamp.
To embellish, I added some stripy, ribbon banners, topped with black buttons, some gold, star brads, and a layered, die cut star.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Sketch 'n' Stash - #116 - Sketch
Jellypark - Masculine
Fab 'n' Funky - #176 - Animals
Crazy Amigo - Men's Cards
Cards for Men - #12 - Boy Will be Boys
