Daring Cardmakers - All Mixed Up and The Same But Different (a bit late!)

The challenge over at Daring Cardmakers today is 'All Mixed Up'......

"How come the majority of girls cards are pink and flowery and the boys are blue and have absolutely no flowers at all? What about cars for girls??? hmmm? This week Tracie wants you to mix up those genders and create cards with a little bit of something not normally found for that sex."

I also used the saying from Kathy's dare last week, but which I couldn't get done in time, but I think it fits this card which is not your usual 'man' card. Even though I used a flower and lace, I kept colours 'manish'. Paper is Fancy Pants Victorian Lace, chipboard from Bubblyfunk and the phrase bubble is Dream Street. I stamped over the flower in script with a chalk inkpad, also colouring the branch with the same. The bird is painted using Ranger Distress crackle paint.


I am also going to enter this card into the Charmed 'Buttons' Challenge.
Thanks for visiting xx
