Tag time over at Take the Pixie challenge!


It's still my birthday and I'm still celebrating my birthday with tons of housework!!!!!  Hmmph (as blog mate Kerry would say!). Here (in spirit of course with this scheduled post!) is my DT card for this week's Take the Pixie Challenge is to tag it!  Here is my take on it...

 
 

I just adore this image!  It is called Pocket of Love and I just love their huge eyes!  And look - no designer papers!  I used Core'dinations vintage look cardstock and went a bit mad with my ripping, distressing tool and lots of edge inking!  Untidy, just like a real boy!  That woodgrain is a Hero Arts background stamp that I embossed with Adirondack embossing powder in coffee and the material is from an old pair of jeans - thought it would match nicely with that stamp!

That's it from me today - enjoying the rest of my birthday!


I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Core'dinations cardstock
Stamps: Pixie Dust Studios Pocket of Love, Hero Arts dots background, CC Designs sentiments
Mediums: Copics
Accents: ribbon and kraft tag from stash
Tools: Distressing Tool, Nestabilitie label die inside card
