Jake Skates - Version 2

I recently made a card using the "Jake Skates" stamp set by Visible Image.  It's here if you want to have a look.  I make my cards to sell solely to raise funds for different charities and have lots and lots of images suitable for girls/ladies but do struggle for boys/men so that is why I was delighted when I caught sight of Visible Image stamps before I went to the NEC last November.  Yes they do lots and lots of other stamps including sentiments, images suitable for girls/ladies, backgrounds, flowers etc.  I shall keep my fingers crossed some more boy/men images come out this year.  They are fantastic quality and for the Jake Skates stamp set it is £11.99 and you get the main image and 5 other stamps (well really it's 6 - as you'll see around the stamped image of Jake there is like a distressed edge.  If you then look at the backing paper with "awesome dude" on it it's got like a dotty edge.  It's the same stamp but just different sides).
 Better stop waffling and get onto my card.  I have coloured my image in with just two green Graph'it pens for the whole green areas (8240 and 8260).  I have used one of the Visible Image stamps around the edge of the image with a green Versafine ink pad.  
The backing papers are a male set from the Paper Cellar and on the blue/green paper I have used the "awesome dude" stamp around the edge along with the dotty edge of the stamp mentioned above.  On the piece of cream card I have stamped all over with the skateboard stamp and used the distress edge stamp to frame it all.  I have stuck Jake onto paper that I have torn to create the illusion of areas for Jake to skate up-and-down on.

I have finished the card off with some cut out stars from a paper from a Debbi Moore magazine, twine with knots added to it and some Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiments.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
