Hi Again
Its my husband's Birthday on Tuesday, (so many birthdays in July) his hobby is collecting retro games and consoles especially anything to do with Mario, so I wanted to make something Mario on his card. 

I found the image from a Mario coloring page on the internet and have coloured him in using my promarkers. The paper with stars on is from papermania which I have had for years. The toadstools are from Create a Critter and the bricks are from the Batman Cartridge. The sentiment is a cricut cut but found that  in my stash along with theses odd gold brads which I found in the bottom of a box (thought they would look like the coins that you collect in the game)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
marks finest papers- male cards
top tip tuesday- one for a man
celebrate the occasion- Happy Birthday
nut crafters- one for the boys
the squirrel and the fox.- kids or babies

Thanks for stopping by
Hugs Vicky
