M.A.W.T.T. (154) 2nd Week - Happy Birthday

It's Thursday again which means it's time for a new challenge at Lili's Little Fairies and this week we want you to get 'A Bit Distressed', but only on your creations.

Now I must admit that I don't particularly like distressing as I think my cards should be neat and tidy, it's just the way I am I suppose.  I have therefore kept my distressing to a minimum by using a bit of chalk on the image and tag and roughing up and inking some edges (where you see brown edges).  Following the great sketch I have coloured my image (Big Present) with promarkers and cut with nesties.  The tag has been punched and a bit of torn paper and a sentiment added.  I didn't think ribbon was very boyish so have used a brad in the tag instead.  A few card candis finish the card.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
