Happy "Mad Hatter" Birthday Trevor

Well folks, it's time for another birthday card .... This one is for our friend Trevor (from our trivia group) and I don't know if I've mentioned before I don't cope with "boy" cards (I think I might say this every time I make one!).  I am such a girly girl card maker ... bling, flowers, pink, lace, pearls, scalloped edges, did I mention pink lol?  Trevor and the rest of the group loved the card and I hope you like it too ...

SO this is my attempt at a "boy" card aged over 9 years lol ...


I must say that this card fits so many amazing challenges out there this week that I don't think I will enter them all coz it's just far too many.  The card follows a sketch from Pixie Dust Studios because I knew I wanted to colour this particular stamp of theirs, "Touch of Depp" all because of the "T" bag in the cup ("T" for Trevor) lol.  Isn't it funny where our mind goes sometimes when creating?

I've used my copics to colour, distressed the tags and my paper with scissors and ink, added a sentiment and some string ... I admitted to the guys that I was sooo tempted to add some girly bling but held back and Trevor was very grateful for that lol ...

 CHALLENGES I WOULD LIKE TO ENTER MY CARD INTO:
(Make a tag or use a tag on your creations)
(Male cards are so out of comfort for me and are only ever attempted when I have to ... not for 'fun' lol)
(Make a tag or use a tag on your card/creation)


Used:
Paper - SU! CS, Kaiser & Basic Grey PP
Stamps - Pixie Dust Studios "Touch of Depp" digi stamp, SU! Sentiment
Other - Martha Stewart border punch, string, Tim Holtz distress ink, Nestabilities Fancy Tags die, copics
