Crafty Cardmakers spotlight - teen & tween boys

Our spotlight challenge for this fortnight at Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight is 'teen or tween boys'.  Now this is actually better for me than cards for teenage girls - I really struggle with those!  Here's my card...


I've used a Sugar Nellie stamp, coloured with promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  The papers are First Edition 'up, up and away', with dark brown cardstock from Papermill Direct.  The stars were cut with my favourite sizzix primitive star die and then distressed... wondering now if I should have distressed all the papers and not just the stars.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
So, are we all loving the school holidays so far?  My little darlings are driving me a bit potty already so I suppose I'd better take them out this afternoon while the weather's still nice :o)
