A Boys Card

Tonight I'll show you a boyscard that I've tried to make in a "shabby-Vintage"-style.
I found this wonderful image at Sureya DeviantARTs gallery.
There are lots and lots of this kind of images. I ended up choosing this guy, and coloured him with Pro- and FlexMarkers.
The designpapers are from FabScraps, behind the image I've used a handmade paper - the flowers in the paper are actually real flowers, put in it in the makingprosess, cute, what?
All papers are distressed and inked (DistressInk BlackSoot).
The tag is made with a MagnoliaDooHickey, it has also got inked edge - an a charm on the twine tied to it.
It took me quite some time to decide to put on the laces and the cheesecloth - I've never used it on a boys card before. On this card I felt it was right, somehow...
The swirls are made with a die from theSpellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and Accents-set.
Finally I put on some grey halfbeads.

The card closed, only the frontside showing:

Close-up of the super image, isn't he both cute and cool...:
