Encouragement card for 1 of my brother's

Hi everyone,

Hope all is well with you. Yes, I have been M.I.A. but I have been working on some projects (squeezing some in mommy life and daughter's school time.) I haven't been too lazy on crafting I promise ;)

The card here is almost finished but just wanted to take a pix before I made any changes... which I didn't make much in the end.

He is the finished card. I didn't make too many changes as you can see.
I just added a small tag with his name (I cut that out by hand, didn't feel like
looking for a tag to cut and power my Cricut.) Added a charm that reads
"HAND made with LOVE"

The Rose dies are from Spellbinder's Donna Salazar's Rose Creations Die
The rose leaves are also from Spellbinder's and the die is from the Foliage set
My "brother's doll is from Cricut's Paper Doll dress Up cartridge (I trimmed off the cheeks/jaw 
because I don't like the big cheeks all of the time plus my bro has a skinny face. lol)
The iron fence is from Cricut Ornamental Iron cartridge. I love all of the intricate designs but 
what sucks it's cleaning up all the left overs on the mat... so if you have a second mat just 
have it ready so it won't slow you down if you're on a "crafting roll" :)
The face stamps are from Peachy Keen Stamps. 

This is the back of the card
it's a Spellbinder's Shapeabilities Dies Ribbon Tag Trio 2 
I just cut the the part that you stick the ribbon in off. 
The wording was done on Open Office but I'm sure 
someone can do it with Microsoft Word.

Side view of the card just so you can see the dimension.

Thank you so much for stooping by. I know I posted it late on my blogspot.

Have a great night.
