LOTV combined challenge

I make cards for my mum and the little old ladies in the village that my folks live in and this morning i got a call to say they want BOY cards.  Hell!!! thats all i need, well i have had this LOTV image for quite a while so i decided that it may just be the perfect timing.  I used scraps of dp for this so dont ask, but that ribbony thingy with the leaves is new, i got it yesterday and i think its just what i needed for this card, how lucky was that.  Again i added some buttons, i do feel that buttons are one of the few things that work for boys cards, threaded some beading thread through the holes in the buttons and voila!

Entering this one into Create 4 fun and Cute card Thursday
