Wellington for Grandad

Good morning all.I hope you are all well.I didn`t have time to make a card for today yesterday as we had visitors so only managed my DT cards.So instead i have a card to share which i made for an order the other day, it was a panic card as i only had an hour to do it, so i cheated and used an image cut from my welington papers.
I am entering my card into the following challenge:
1.Simon says stamp challenge - Anything goes
2.Here come the boys challenge - Challenge 35 - Teddy bears

Products used are:
Brown card
Wellington papers and sentiment stamps
Buttons
Hougie board
Glue gun

Close up of the cheat image.
 

A sideways view.

And a pic of the box lid.Luckily the customer loved it so all well.
Thanks so much for popping by, means a lot.
Back to work today so i will catch you all later,
Hugs Coops.xx
