It's another boy birthday card - and I won the Magnolia Down Under Challenge!!

Happy Sunday everyone!
I had such a quiet night last night as 2 of my 3 boys were at sleepovers!!  And this morning my 3 yr old is off to a birthday party which is a pancake breakfast, yum!!  And to make my day an even happier one I just saw I won the Magnolia Down Under Challenge - 'Moving to the Country'!!  I'm so thrilled - woohoo!!  Another birthday party means of course another boy birthday card.  I so love this High Hopes stamp and I'm certainly putting it to good use!  
I decided to colour the image this time with copics and I just love the result.  The colours are so beautifully vivid and I'm finally starting to 'understand' more how to use them with regards to shading etc.  This card is pretty simple in design as I didn't have a lot of time to put it together. The back panel is cb embossed with the argyle folder and the image is cut out on the nesties. Punched photo corners, birthday sentiment and little wooden buttons with blue thread through them are my 'boy' embellishments!!  No flowers on here .....
I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday and enjoying whatever joys the day brings. Thanks for stopping by and for all your beautiful comments!
Hugs,

Hi Danielle, this is gorgeous - a perfect 'boy' card with a fabulous image and such great colours. I suppose you must get good at these with three boys, but I bet you wish you could do more girl cards.
