Kenny K pockets with tags DT card

Happy Sunday everyone!
Ugh to this UK weather! Honestly one minute it's sunny then it rains for about and hour than sunny again for 5 min, then hail, then more rain!!! It's pretty dull and miserable I hope it gets better soon!
Today sees another new challenge over at Kenny Ks Krafty Girlz and our theme is..
I have to say this slightly scared me I'm not that much into tags let alone pockets! But I went for a pocket card with a simple tag and made a car for my nephew's birthday which is on Thursday, the same day as my son's.
My nephew, Sam, is autistic, he loves playing with cards, not in the game sort of way you and I would but counts them, flicks them, holds them etc so this image, anime game kid, was completely perfect for his card!
I have used portobello rd papers (I really love these especially for male cards) The playing cards were a freebie download, I just googled them and printed them off! My play tab is one I've had in my stash forever from rusty pickle, the tag is made from an old jeans tag, I just roughed it up and added some paper and then added the metal  embossed charm from Making memories, my sentiment is SU.
I have coloured this super image with prisma pencils and I have added some glossy accents to his glasses for a slightly raised effect. I have edged in vintage photo and mounted on kraft cardstock.
I would like to enter this into..
OLLCB Bold and bright, For fun challenges anything goes, Cute card thurs metallica, Daring cardmakers tag you're it, Crafty Anns it's a man thing, Totally gorjuss boys and their toys and 2 sisters use a digi.
Do check out the rest of the teams cracking creations this wk!
I have to say I'm super excited for this week coming! My mum is here tomorrow for the week (so I may not be about blogland so much) It's Calebs 5th birthday on Thurs and we get our puppy on Sat whoop whoop it's fun times ahead!!
Thanks so much for coming by my blog!
Big hugs to you all

Hi Rebekah, what a great card! Love the layout and a really wonderful image perfectly coloured.

Never made a tag myself - either stand alone or on a card! Wouldn't even know where to start!!

Sounds like you've got a busy week ahead. Hope Caleb has a lovely birthday. My Emily is currently in the living room writing out her birthday invites - and that's not until the end of June, she's getting rather excited at turning 5 ;-)

Have a wonderful week with all those things going on, but lovely family times together.
