Birthday card for nephew and challenges!!

Hi Everyone,I'm still sticking to my new year's resolution i think its a record that a resolution has kept for so long!LOL

I've made a birthday card for my nephew Michael he will be 9 so i thught he might want a bit grown up rather than cutey and i'm also entering the following challenges also:

Allsorts Challenge - A tag, ticket or label

Anyone 4 Anya- Something completley different - i've used a new folding techinque which is  a spring card

ICS Sketch 55 

The Crafty Pad - Brown, Blue & Cream or White

Totally Papercrafts - Lots of Spots

I've used:

DCWV retro papers
Papermania textured carstock
'Prince Ian' digi stamp TGF
HOTP Brads
Sizzix dots embossing folder
carstock label
Promarker for skin colour and pencils for clothes

I thought i would give promarkers a go but not use them for all my image as i didn't want to ruin it but i think it's turned out really nice so they will be going on my shopping list!LOL

Thanks for looking!
