This one is bugging me!

OK here's the card:

My problem is - a friend asked me to make some guy birthday cards for her grandsons (19 & 28).  The ones I've made so far haven't suited her for one reason or another.  Yet I'm not getting any personal details about the young men to go with a theme, i.e. golfing, fishing, sports, etc. 
I found this stamped image and the paper strips in the clutter on my table.  But I'm thinking it's too juvenile.  Guess I'll enter it in the challenges below and then go back to the crafting table.
