Teen male birthday card

Hi all!
My cousin Martin is turning fourteen and as he is one of the greatest young lad I have ever met I decided that I would make a card for his birthday. He trully deserve something special! But as you know it is a complicated thing to create a male card, even more when you add the word "teen" on the theme, I had to scratch my head for a while before I got started. In the end a few skulls, some flashy colors and an old tag made a good combo and I was happy with the result.
Here is the card, let me know what you think!

I have covered some chipboard numbers with some gold glittery embossing powder.

A bit of button twine wrapped around some paper and stappled in place...

I have roughly spread some paint on the background of the card and I have sprinkled some Zing embossing powder just before it had finished drying. I then heated it up.

I hope that this gives you plenty of ideas!
Thank you for looking! See you soon!
