Lovely hAnglar Only GDT card

I was so thrilled to be chosen as the winner of the first challenge at Lovely hAnglar Only challenge blog and even more thrilled when they asked if I would be a guest designer for two challenges!!! Thank you soooo much ladies!!! Today it is time for the 3rd challenge and this time there is a gorgeous sketch to follow. I decided to make a start on my son's teacher thank you cards and thought this little hAnglar boy was just like him, especially when coloured in his school uniform colours! The papers are from MME La Paperie stack, distressed with Walnut Stain distress ink.
I have coloured the image with distress inks and used a white gel pen to highlight his cheeks. I have added a couple of eyelets to the image so that I could thread through some jute string.

The border was punched with MS doiley lace punch and I added some extra distressing to the paper above the sentiment which I stamped with some tiny alphabet stamps by Hampton Art.

I didn't want the card to be too girly with it being from my little boy, so I made some lollipop flowers to be the main feature and just added a few small roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Hope you like it and you can join us at Lovely hAnglar Only challenge! Thanks for looking! x

Well done Jane.
Where do you get these Hangler stamps, they are delightful but I cannot find them anywhere. Would be willing to swap stamped images with people, but cannot seem to work out how. Debbiexx
