Slingshot boy

Hi everyone, I'm back again. I've got a card to share with you. It's a very simple layout but I think it works well...
 I've used another Bugaboo image, which I've coloured with promarkers. I've cut it out using the biggest oval die I have so I drew round the die to make the red mat. The red checked paper was in my scraps drawer and started out life as 12x12. I matted it with white card before attaching it to a red A5 card blank. I've embossed the blue card with a happy birthday folder and printed out a sentiment using word. I've added a couple of red buttons from my stash.
 It's a simple layout, but one I could use time and time again....
