Confirmation Card for a Boy - Card No 1

I need to make several confirmation cards for a boy - this is the first one I've finished so far. I've been trying to make these for quite some time, but sitting down in my craft room, my mind has taken another direction. So I decided that I would make a confirmation card with whatever sketch would be provided by the Inkspirational team this week. I flipped the sketch, and the postmark shape inspired me to make a frame of layered papers. I decided to go for a clean look, with platinum embossing powder against a  white background. The image is made with a North Star Stamp. Each corner of the card has been decorated with a Spellbinder corner die cut.
This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #17 Sketch
2) Celebrate the Occasion - #109 Clean & Simple
3) Stamping Sensations - Special Occasions
4) Paper Shelter Challenge - #109 For the boys
5) The Corrosive Challenges - Life`s Special Occasions
6) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
