Happy Birthday Edwin gets Race Car!

Hi everyone and welcome back. Today I have made a birthday card for my youngest grandson (Izzic) who will be turning 5 on March 7th.
I chose to use Edwin (#104 Baseball Cap and #415 Oak Tree). You can purchase these stamps from Magnolia-licious here. The race car is from a old Stampin Up stamp set that I have had for years.

Papers are: Bazzil, Stampin Up and K&Company
I used copic markers and the colors are:
Skin: E11,E00,E000 and R20
Hair: E49,E59,E25 amd E35
Clothes: B93,B34,C3,Y02, C2 and Blender
Shoes: C5 and C7
Tree Trunk: E47 and E57
Leaves: G85,G99 and G20
Airbrush Background: B00 and G94
I used my cricut machine for everything on the inside of the card.
I think that about covers it. I would love to read what you think of my card for my little boy.
Thanks so much for stopping by and your comments!
