A Boy and his Toy

Good morning my dears,   I hope you are all well,  I wanted to show you this sweet Edwin with his little toy plane.  Such a fabulous image for any little boys card,  I'm not great at boys/mens' cards but |I really did enjoy making this one. 

I found a bloc of this card stock while tidying up my mountain of paper stash yesterday, it turned out to be perfect for this card.  I don't know the name or the maker. 

Sweet Edwin from the new Princes & Princesses collection 2012 has been coloured with Copics and there is a full list of all the ingredients at the bottom of my post.
