Three Little Boys

These are three cards which I've made for one grand-nephew and the grandsons of two friends all of whom have birthdays between now and Christmas.  I'm not very inventive when it comes to male cards of any age so if I tend to batch make when I can.  This easel card is decorated with papers and images from two Cuddly Buddly downloads - A Patchwork of Papers Blue and Teddy Bear's Playtime 2.  The teddy is decoupaged and the embellishments on the card were made using circle and daisy punches, a Quickutz shield die and a Go Kreate Happy Birthday die.  I've personalised the cards with their initials and age using peel-offs.

I'd like to enter these cards in the following challenges

Thanks for reading
