Arrrgh I'm late & It's A Man Card! - Paper Play DT Card

Hello peeps,
Oh my goodness guess who's an air head & forgot what day & week it was! That's what happens when I try & be organised & make DT cards a few days in advance it throws me right out of my little routine, there I was happily doing a little blog hopping & I saw one of my teamies DT cards on their blog & realised it's my teams week to play & I hadn't even thought about starting my post, oops!

Without any further waffle even though you probably already know long before I realised lol, today is new challenge day at
& this week our challenge is

My DT card is another birthday card I made for my baby boy so once again a severe lack of flowers, man cards are so not my favourites, they need some pretties lol.
Apologies the piccy's aren't the best, I don't have Photoshop & it was one of those miserable rainy & dark days when I took this and I wish I'd used my Copics instead of DI's.

Ingredients -
Image & Sentiment - Cardmad Fairy (thanks Jenni xx), Small Stars corner - Magnolia
Medium - Distressed Inks
Papers - GCD Studio
Buttons, Ribbon & Charms from stash
Tools - MS Cherished PATP, Music Notes - Marianne Creatable & My Favourite Things, Magnolia Doo Hickey Swirls

I'll pop back later & link products if I can stay awake, if not I'll link up tomorrow
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Digi Days - spots & stripes, Sketch Saturday - sketch, Pixie Dust Studio - birthday, Paper Pretties - black & white +1, Sisterhood Of Crafters - birthday, Celebrate The Occasion - male birthday + metal, Top Tip Tuesday - layer it, Make It Monday - anything goes, Simon Says Stamp & Show - some stripes, Simply Create - shades of black

That's me done peeps, time for a bit more hopping before bed.
Thanks for stopping by

  49. I love this card, Mandy! I actually like the look of the DIs... it gives it a rather soft and kind of vintage look that I'm not sure would have been the same with Copics. I'm sure it still would have looked lovely though. I'm a huge fan of black and white with small pops of color.
