Earthling Birthday Card

Here's a birthday card for my partner's nephew. The boy is big into martial arts but I have made so many cards with this theme for him over the last couple of years that I thought I would try something different. He is turning 8 - you don't think the alien/robot theme is too childish for him, do you? Honest opinions, please :-)
All the backing papers are digis from Papercrafts Inspirations, and so is the alien; sentiment created in MS Office Word; circle Nestabilities.
I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Top Tip Tuesday - Birthday
Creative Craft World - Card for a male
FairyTale - Children
Stamping Vacation - No flowers
Creative Card Crew - No flowers
Simon Says - ANything goes
Send a Smile 4 kids - Anything goes
Paper Playtime - Anything goes
