Not a Christmas Card

I needed to make a male card for an upcoming 18th birthday!
I didn't feel that teddy bears or cute little boys would be quite right for this occasion, so I went for this Kenny K Digi - I hope it's within the limit of decency...
I still have some way to go with my coloring skills, especially with markers, but I'm fairly satisfied with how this one turned out as I'm no hair and skin expert!
I've used a wood patterned DP as background. The ones with spots and squares are leftovers.
I've used die cuts for the number and stickers for the sentiment. The only embellishments are some die cut stars.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Here Come the Boys - Anything Goes
2) Totally Papercrafts – For the Boys
3) Make it Monday - always Anything Goes
