One for the boys....(yikes!)

The challenge to my horror over at the BG challenge to create something for the boys. I absolutely detest making cards for much so that I have been known to actually BUY cards for male friends and relatives...just don't tell my hubby ;o)
Anyway I'm not overly happy with this card but wanted to take part. Papers are BG 'Phoebe' and I've used distressing inks to colour the image in.
I'd like to say a big thanks to Zuzu as well for inviting me to join her forum. I feel very honoured as I have worshipped this womans work for a long time and can quite happily spend an hour or two wandering round her blog.
Oh I have a favour to ask...if you happen to have any spare hours in the day right now could you throw them my way!?!

I've got the same stamp that you've used to make this card and have never managed to create anything half way decent with it. However, you have created a fab card and have given me some ideas as to how I might use it better.
