Hexagon Shaped Card for a Boy

I bought some hexagon dies not so long ago, and today I wanted to make a shaped card for a boy.
I've used circle dies to make a kraft frame around the scene. For the scene I've used 3 different dies - the bird,  grass and fence. I've used scrap papers for these elements. As for the flower field I've used washi tape. For the sky I've used design paper. Edwin is colored with watercolor pencils.

I enter this card into these challenges:
1) 2 Sisters - #105 In the Garden
2) Card Crafter's Circle - Rich and Earthy Colours
3) Card Makin' Mamas - Try Something New (Hexagon shaped card)
4) Stampin With The Dragon - Anything but Square or Rectangle
5) Moving Along With The Times - Anything but square
6) Dancing in Pajamas - washi tape
7) Going Grey With Scrap-Creations - Kids Theme
8) The Crafty Pad - #184 To Die for
9) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Edwin is a cute fella here lol. Love different shaped cards and this is perfectly created.
Yes, I do love to paint girls, flowers etc, colours vary it just happened there were a lot of pink challenges to go into. I must dig out my Tilda stamps, I have over a couple hundred stamps of all varieties and don't get to use them much now digis are in....take care..xx
