Motorbike card

Hi everyone, just thought I'd share this card I've made for a friend to give to her son. It's the first time I've made a card in this style, with the cross over pocket and a tag in it...

 The stamp is from the magazine 'Creative Stamping' and is stamped with Rich Cocoa momento ink. The 'Son' stamp was from the same set. The ribbon started out pale pink and I coloured it with a Promarker. The tag has been inked using Rich Cocoa momento and various distress inks (antique linen, frayed burlap and pumice stone, I think). The sentiment was computer generated. I'm pleased how the tag turned out as I struggle a bit inking things. 
Both triangular panels have been embossed with dots using a mask and my big shot. 

I would like to enter this for the following:-
Penny's Paper-Crafty challenge - masculine

Happy crafting
