Happy Nerd-day

Hi, Happy Wednesday.. We are half way through the week!  Great news right?  I have a card that I created for my daughter's birthday.  She's in college and the only thing she loves more than books is her boyfriend whom she calls, Nerd.  I thought this was the perfect card for her, and the image was perfect for her daddy to give to her as his favorite pic of his little girl was with pigtails.  I can't believe she's all grown up now.   Wow!!!  He's getting old... I'm still 29... forever.
This card was also created for Bugaboo's Humor Me Wednesday which is celebrating International Children's Book Day.  I used Ken Oliver's Color Burst powders to create the background accompanied with one distress oxide ink and spray.   I hope you find it as cute as i do!

Products used:  black/white/teal card stock, Ken Oliver Color Burst water color powder, Canson XL water color paper, Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, Distress Oxide Picked Rasperry, Distress Stain Spray Picked Raspberry, White Gelly Roll Pen, Word Doc for sentiment, Andy Skinner Alphabet Spaghetti stencil, Big Book Girl
