Book Card for a Confirmation Boy

I've posted many male cards - and confirmation cards - lately, but what can I say - it's the season:) I've used brown and beige colors for this book card. The image, from North Star Stamps, has been stamped directly on a DP from Authentique, and it's been heat embossed with brown embossing powder. The background paper is from Maja Designs. I've used a leftover to make the frame using a die from my new favorite set - the Timeless Rectangles from Spellbinders. I've used brown paper to make the back of the book, I scored some lines to make it look like a good old one, and I used the same paper to decorate the corners on the book cover's front. The butterflies are cut out from a DP from Kort & Godt. To close the book I added brown organza. The inside has been decorated with a DP printed with confirmation sentiments. I used a die cut which was part of a candy I received from Shirley-Anne, and I heat embossed a confirmation greeting on it. All edges have been distressed with walnut Distress Ink.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #22 Anything Goes
2) Celebrate the Occasion - #114 Fluttering By
3) Creative Craft Challenges - #11 For The Fellas
4) Die Cuttin' Divas - #117 Shape Card
