One for the boys

That's what our lovely DT-friend Peta set up as the next challenge for us over at RoP.
Well - being a Mom to a cute little son - this is easy - right ;-) Well- nope - since Peta did
not want any cute embellies, flowers etc on the card.

Hm.......well - luckily I have some wonderful stamps with cute little boys (I know that people keep on asking for more images of men and boys - but then in the end - it's the cute little girl stamps that sells. I guess it's because of the fact that we want to put as much flowers, embellies etc on the cards - right - or???)
So I coloured little Edwin with my copics - using more brighter Summer colours (Well - I do hope that the sweet owner of RoP - Summer also loves them...hihi.....sorry - could not help myself...)
Used my DPs from Basic Grey and SU. Chalked around the edges with pine cone. Wanted several layers as you can see. Added buttons from stash and instead of thread - I used the metallic green flowerthread that I purchased in our local flowershop.

Then I added the little train, suitcase, tickets and railroad crossing - that I had received from Lim. So now it could be used for a boy who likes to play with trains or for someone leaving for a long journey.
Hope you like it and please note - no blings, no stickles, no flowers..... ;-)
Sorry also for the bad pics - but the card was finished late yesterday - so not the best time
to take pics...
Kramis and pop over to our challenge and join in.
