Treehouse Fun

Hello everyone

just popped by to show you my latest card.


It is for my nephew Joel who is 9 and totally boy so I wanted to incorporate that into a card, hence the bug collection and baseball hat.

 I love this denim paper by Hot off the press and have had it in my stash for ages, and I really fancied using Kraft card to back it all to make it blend in with the wood of the tree house.

 The stamp is Lilli of the valleys Tree House and I coloured it with my spectrum noir markers.  Just loved doing the bushes and the wood of the treehouse, think it is my favorite stamp at the moment.



 

 A few finishing touches, a string bow topped with a red button.... a few boy themed stickers, and a personal touch with his name.............
..........................finally, I carried the theme through to the inside pages with a few frogs.

I usually find boys cards so hard to do and am really never happy with them as I can't add any bling but I think I am rather pleased with this one. It really sums up Joel too and I can just imagine him swinging on that rope, and exploring the tree house.  Can't wait for him to open it.

Hope you are all having a crafty weekend  and thanks for stopping by
Best wishes
