Tanda Teaser-Toybox Treasures!!!

Well Wendy very nearly had me stumped with the latest Tanda Teaser. I don't really do childrens cards so don't have any child related bits and pieces apart from new born stuff.........and you know how much I love doing baby cards.........not!!!
Then I thought......well it doesn't have to be for a very small child and the old cogs started making a funny grinding noise and off I went.
So this card is in the style of an old boxed game. I did the frame and the writing on the computer, cut it out, screwed it up, chalked it, then chalked it some more, spritzed it with walnut ink and then ironed it and stamped the medieval image which is by TandaStamps.
I added a thumb print as it is a boys' toy........we all know what mucky pups they!!! Also added a fun touch with some banter written in a childs handwriting.
Took me all of 20 minutes to make once I had the idea.
Thanks for looking.
