Birthday boy

   The March Send A Smile 4 Kids challenge has the theme of for the boys.
   I have made an easel card. The backing paper used is from an old We are Memory Keepers paper pad and was matted and layered onto brown co-ordinations cardstock and cream card. The digi image from The Paper Shelter is called casual boy and I coloured it using Promarkers. It also is matted onto brown co-ordinations cardstock. The sentiment used on the easel stopper was cut using a Tattered Lace die. I finished the card by adding three card candies to each of the corners of the base and easel part of the card.
