A Knight in Shining Armor

One of my daughter's friends has a birthday party next week.  I purchased his gift a few weeks ago (While shopping with his mom recently I heard him asking for a knight/horse - hopefully he still wants something along that line....cause that's what he's getting!) - I wanted a card in the same theme as his present...
The card is one of these (she gave me a couple in my birthday present!)

Knight image from here (colored with Bic markers)
Swords are die cuts (from the Kids Cuttlebug Pirate set)
Name is Bubbles die cut letters
Since this card is really an envelope card - I decided to put some Knight pictures/puzzles inside for him to color - got them here
Here's a picture of the gift --- I found these knights/horses/dragon at A.C. Moore a few weeks back (on sale too!) -- then later in the day I found the helmet and simply could not pass it up.  Ryan likes to dress up as things (At least I assume he does from all the different dress up things he has --- fireman, astronaut etc.) - so what better gift -- he can be a knight or play knight either one. Maybe I'll have to see if I can find a play sword to go with it too!

I can't tell you how MUCH he's going to love that card and gift! Every single time we walk by those "toobs" in Michaels, he stops and asks for some. Somehow I always get by with "wait for a 50% coupon". :)

And I absolutely LOVE what you've done with that card! I hadn't even thought of that idea, and I haven't used any of that kind yet. Thanks so much for the great ideas!
