SDC14: Not so Sweet 16

It's time for the Stampotique Designer's Challenge again!  This month Kaz's eldest niece turns 16, but she's not your typical glittery shoes and handbags card kind of girl. So she would like to see some (not so) sweet 16 cards for non-girly girls in her honour! This is a Stampotique Stamps only week, if you do not own any Stampotique Stamps yet, please join us the first Wednesday of the month for our any stamps goes challenge.

Below is my card for this challenge.  I took a little bit of a different slant on "not so sweet" and made it about being "not so happy" as is often the case in those pesky teen years.

I prithee send me back my heart,
Since I cannot have thine;
For if from yours you will not part,
Why, then, shouldst thou have mine?
John Suckling
