Fab n Funky Challenge - "Calling all Brads"

 Hi there,  how are you all today?  I have had a very busy few days this week with work, kids and crafting!  The crafting I enjoy  (and of course the kids!) but my printer has been playing up which has made it a bit difficult to print the images I need for DT cards due!  As a result I am chasing my tail tonight with this last minute make for the Fab n Funky Challenge this week!  The theme is Calling all Brads - use brads anywhere on your project.
The sponsor this week is Kenny K
with a prize of 5 Digis
Despite my last minute dash to complete my card on time, once my printer behaved, I had loads of fun with the image I had which was  Boogie Down.
 Here's my creation!


I used a Little Clare's tag card as my base, coloured the image with pro markers and used off cuts of my favourite paper - My Mind's Eye, Dolled up paper.  The brads that I have used are also My Mind's Eye, Dolled Up.  I wanted to find a quote that might inspire an awkward teenager (my daughter!) and so I checked out the  Quote Garden website and found this great quote by Terri Guillemets.  I thought it was a nice sentiment, however I apologise if I have inadvertently used the quote incorrectly.

Anyway,  I really hope you like the card.  I think it's fun and quirky (a bit like my daughter).

I would like to enter this card for the following Challenges:

This is fab Katie - I just love the design and pretty papers - just perfect for this image - I think the quote works well too - my stroppy teenager is grown up now and quite calm and collected (most of the time!!) - but I remember when she used to stomp up stairs and jump up and down on her bedroom floor - happy days lol hugs Judith x
