Angular Boys Birthday Card

Good morning to all of you out there in blog land, 
I was up early again this morning, however did go to bed late too.  (Sam they went night fishing).  So I was crafting in the early hours of the morning and what a better way to start the Bank Holiday over here in the UK.  

This card if for a very special little boy whose birthday is coming up over the next few months. 

I decided to go with the Fab N Funky Sketch - I needed to avoid any curved shapes for the image.
Here is the card, several photo's as otherwise I do not think you would see how it opened etc.
The papers are from the Capsule Collection Mono range in the green.  Bead work self created charm with craft wire.  Wanted to be different hence the style of card, but wow was it a challenge to cut the image plate in sections to match the style of the card.  Love these letter beads from Hobby House just perfect for a little persons name on a Birthday card.

Images coloured in copics.

I am entering this into the following challenges
