childhood memories

This cute image from lily of the valley so reminds me of my childhood, we lived near fields that had lots of trees and I use to go tree climbing all the time along with my friends. We would spend hours playing and running through long grass ,ferns and trees from early morning till dusk and only returning home when we were hungry or shouted in. We had 2 German shepherds who were part of our play gang  and instead of shouting our names to call us in mum would call the dogs they would go and we would follow.I even remember getting into trouble on odd occasions for getting dirty and even tearing a dress when I had been dressed to go to a wedding and whilst mum was getting my younger siblings ready I went tree climbing and slipped....oops!
I kept my card simple using an embossing folder that I love as its fun as has a real retro feel, seems funny thinking my childhood can be thought of as retro.I used butchers twine for accent and simply fussy cut the image after colouring with promarkers.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

dream valley challenges-embossing wet or dry

Glitter and sparkle-something beginning with B, I used butchers twine
The craft barn-clean and simple
