I can't quite decide.....

I wanted to make a masculine card.  I opted for a blue and gray color scheme.  This cute little digi from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps worked perfectly with that.  The strip of washi tape across the bottom did too.  And the silver candies at the corners fit right in.  But now I can't decide if I want to add a sentiment for a little boy or one more for a guy.  I can think of all kinds of sentiments for the inside of a guy card....
.....You're Elephantastic/Guess you've had a lot of time to practice.  Happy Birthday!
or You're Elephantastic/and really OLD!!!  Happy Birthday!
or You're Elephantastic/this cute little elephant made me think of you.  Must have been the wrinkles.
or You're Elephantastic/Happy Birthday! Celebrate in a huge way!
or You're Elephantastic/which is why I could never forget your birthday!
But for a little boy I can't really come up with much.  Then again, little boys may or may not even read the inside.  I suppose the last 2 would work ok.......  hmmmmmmmmmm

Well, I'm going to stop thinking about that for now and enter it in these challenges:
