Confirmation Easel Card ~ for a Boy!

Da dama til en av brødrene mine bestillte et staffeli Konfirmasjons kort for en gutt som skulle konfirmeres på Fredag, visste jeg dette stemplet ville være midt i blinken. Og kortet ble veldig godt mottatt :) Har brukt stemplet flere ganger før med stor suksess! (se tag: Confirmation) Så all ære til stempel produsentene! :)

This easel card was made as a comissoned card for a boys confirmation day last Friday, given from one of my brothers girlfriend & their family ~ and I've been told it was a hit.. So I'm very satisfied with the outcome, but all credit goes to theese awesome stamps ~ my favourites to use on male confirmation cards! :) 
I've used this one, 'Steven' before on cards (check out the 'Confirmation' tag to see previous cards), and while I was at it I colored in some more images of the same ~ so there will be more soon!

Inside detail ~ money pocket!

I'm entering my card in theese challenges:
