Simon Says Stamp challenge - card for a child

Wow, we had the most gorgeous distressing entries last week, thank you all so much!!! This week at Simon Says Stamps challenge we are challenging you to make a card for a child and the DT are all showcasing Boefjes stamps. (who???? I hear you ask LOL - they're such cute stamps and perfect for children's cards. Check them out here!) The Design Team are also sending their cards to a child through Post Pals or Make a Child Smile. All the children on these sites have life threatening illnesses and are so courageous. All they ask is that you send a child a card to bring some joy into their lives and smiles on their faces. If you have a similar charity in your own Country then please consider sending your card to them. I know they will appreciate it. I have used K&Co papers for my card and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz paper distresser and faded jeans distress ink. I am also entering this card into the Truly Scrumptious challenge, thank you for the sketch, it's stunning! I'm also entering my card into the Spoonful of Sugar challenge as their theme is "one for the boys".
Here's my cute little Boefjes image, this one is Kane and I've coloured him with copics and framed him with a nestie.
I added some eyelets and connected them with some jute string for a boyish embellishment.
I also added a couple of Basic Grey buttons, also threaded with jute string.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join in this week. To see more gorgeous creations using Boefjes images visit the challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's work - gorgeous as always!! x
