Ben's little Hanglar boy card

Hi folks!
Well here's Ben's card as promised. The twins had a great day yesterday. Had lots of fun and ate lots of cake. Thank you for all your kind birthday wishes which I passed on. Not forgetting a huge thank you to my good friend Chris. She made a little boy and girl very happy with some beautiful cards (if you'd like a peak they are on her blog)
This card is a little different for me. Not hugely embellished. I like to make my cards so that the card base groans with the weight ;o) I followed the fab sketch over on Paper take weekly and the Reuse, Recycle theme The Pink Elephant has set. I have used a piece of cardboard salvaged from a box that arrived with.... crafting goodies of course!
I snipped off the tiny line which was the string that the Hanglar boy is holding in his hand so I replaced it with some thread from my sewing box. I have also used some glossy accents on the truck to make it glossy.
Hope you are enjoying the sunshine.
Ciao for now!

Maybe this shouldn't be said for a boy card, but it's BEAUTIFUL! I love the cardboard. How cool that you even replaced his string. I don't think that would have occured to me. Wonderful job on this card, the shiny truck won me over ;)

This is a fabulous card Sandra, cards for boys can be so difficult, no flowers and fluff but you make it look easy. I would love to receive this and I'm a girl!!!!
Glad your twins had a great day and thanks for your kind birtday wishes for my daughter, she was thrilled to read them.
