Birthday card for boy with a tag

I tend to make A2 sized cards, but for this boy card I used my dies from Kort&Godt to make the card base and kraft and DP layers. I chose papers with spots and stripes and a strip of burlap paper for texture.
MB dies were used for the seashells and starfish and also the leaves.
It's really rare that I add flowers to my cards, and I never use them on cards for boys, but here I made an exception and I feel (and hope) it isn't too girly.
I added twine and stamped the birthday greeting on a tag.
The image is from Whimsy Stamps and has been colored with Promarkers and a white gel pen.

This card is for:
Allsorts - #478/479 - Tags
Whimsy Stamps Challenge Blog - #108 Anything Goes
Moving along with the Times - #77 For The Boys
The Male Room - #91 Birthday

Love so much this design, it's masculine but sweet and delicate, just perfect for a little boy! This card is really the perfection! I pinned it. All the elements matches very well together and the daisy with the sentiment is a lovely touch, as well the burlap and the string!! Love the dies you used...!!!

I think it's just right for a male card, men like flowers too! It's beautifully put together and so many lovely details to it.
