Robin Hood! Ben's birthday card

Hi folks! Here's the card I made for my little boy Ben. He's a bit Robin Hood fan and you can often find him singing the little tune from the Disney version as he plays with his sister. So you can imagine my glee when the new Magnolia Spring kit landed on my doormat with little Edwin dressed in a Robin Hood outfit. Perfect!
I used patterned papers from my DCWV 'Once Upon a Time' stack. Decoupaged the large tree on the left. Used my Sizzlet extended 'grass' die and a small decorative strip from the patterned paper. Edwin was coloured using Copic Markers, carefully cut out and adhered with dimensional glue gel. I cut out the lettering with a Spellbinders alphabet 'Caesar', from gold mirriboard.
Ben was thrilled with this card.
Ciao for now!

I'm another firm Magnolia fan here. I know people complain about their lack of mouths but they are just so cute and this latest range is one of the best I think.

This card is just fabulous and I am sure Ben will love it.

You have made me think of a whole new use for my Once Upon a Time stack with this and the other card you did. I bought it for my Daughter's wedding and really it didn't suit and it's been sitting there unused.

Keep up the awe inspiring work Sandra!
