A Tween Teen's Dream over at Take the Pixie Challenge!

(Please scroll down for my Quixotic Inspirations DT post!)


This week's Take the Pixie Challenge is to make a creation for a teenager!  There are so many gorgeous teenage images that I didn't know which one to choose but ended up choosing this one...

 
 


I used  Mr Music who is obviously a super cool teenager, just like my nephew!  I matched him up with this great paper from the Cosmo Cricket The Boyfriend paper pad and printed that sentiment from my pc.  I used Distress Ink in Antique Linen to give it a dirty look (rather than a distressed look!) - thought that would be better for a boy!

I hope you can join in with us this week!  The other DT creations are so inspirational and you can see them here!


I am entering my card into the following challenges:


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock,
Cosmo Cricket The Boyfriend paper pad
Stamps: Pixie Dust Studios Mr Music, PC printed sentiment
Mediums: Copics
Accents: none!

Tools: EK Success border punch, Tim Holtz distressing tool, Nestabilitie die inside card

I like the card very much - the colour scheme is very suitable for a boy and as usual I like how you decorate the whole of your cards, not just the front!
