You are special

I've just discovered the WOJ digis and I just couldn't resist getting a whole bunch of them! I picked this image because of the cool look of this mouse, and I thought it would be perfect for a card for a  teenage boy.
I've used white, blue and burgundy papers, as well as a Maja Design DP with script. The blue paper is embossed with a star patterned embossing folder. For the DP I used a new Fiskars border punch (an early birthday present from my older sister). I used a burgundy left over thread from a cross stitching kit and attached a post card metal charm to it. The sentiment is heat embossed with blue embossing powder and translates "You are Special".  The image is colored with Promarkers.

This card is for these challenges:
1) The Crafter's Cafe Challenge - #17 Fathers or For a Male
2) The Crazy Challenge - #147 Teens card
3) 'ABC' Challenges - I (Heart) Animals
4) The Corrosive Challenges - Animal Antics
5) A Gem of a Challenge - #83 Emboss It
6) Creative Card Crew - #38 Metal
7) Top Tip Tuesday - #103 Masculine
8) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
