Nephew's Birthday

Good morning folks.
Today is Tuesday so it's another challenge over at Cardz4Guyz. This week it's:-

Spots and Stripes

A good theme for a guys card, I think. As it was my nephew's birthday I decided to make a card for him.

I bought the papers from LOTV a few months ago and this is their first outing. The set is Nit Wits Candles and Cake, full of lovely bright papers great for anyone but probably most suited to boys. The stamp and circular sentiment are also from LOTV cut with a Fiskars circle punch. It's a good job I don't go over to Farsley too often as my stash would keep growing out the door!
The spotty paper was die cut using a Marianne die (COL1315) then mounted on red and cut around freehand. The little tag with birthday on is also from the same set. I coloured the image using Copics as follows:-

Carpet, shorts, wallpaper - B99,97,95,93,000,00,02
Jumper -  R22,27,29
Car - R22,27,29,Y21,28
Hair - Y21,28,YR24
Skin - E000,00,11,R20
TV - C5,3,2,0
Games boxes - YG11,13,17,C7,5,3,0, R22,27,29

Buttons and ribbon from the stash as always, it doesn't get any smaller!

I shall enter it in the following challenges:-

Cute Card Thursday - Something New (Papers)
Feeling Crafty - Dies and Punches
A Little bit Crafty - Man up
Cards and More - Men only
As you like it - My Style - 
Well plain and simple usually with a coloured image (usually LOTV) and no extra frills and frippery. Not too bulky as it needs to get it through the postal system!

Anyway thanks for stopping to read my ramblings, bye bye
