Oh TEENAGERS! What can I say LOL

Happy Sunday to everyone :o) I imagine a lot of you will be busy watching, or entertaining guests for the Super Bowl in USA today!!

Thanks for taking a minute to have a look at my new card.
This wonderful image is from Mo Manning. If you haven't seen Mo's images as yet, you must take a look at her store. Her drawing is amazing and you will fall in love with many of her digital images.

This card I made for my 13 year old nephew. Apparently he has recently died his lovely blond hair something called: Blackberry Black!!! Sooooo I have made the hair that very colour. I don't think it comes through with the camera, but believe me in person that is exactly the colour! LOL LOL Sure hope he likes the card. If he keeps it - should remind him in later years what he did when he was 13 * grin *

As always I have decorated the inside of the card as well as the outside, but today am just showing the outside as I took several pictures trying to get 'that hair'.

It was a blast to colour this one. As usual I used my Copics.
I also used SU card stock both Whisper White and Basic Black. I made the polka dot paper from the computer. The ribbon, birthday tag and phone charm are all from my stash:

Here is the entire card:

Here is a closer look:

Here is a little look at the embellishments:

Thanks a lot for visiting and enjoy the big game :o)
Love ~ Candy
