I made this card for our neighbours boy for his birthday. He and his brother are avid gamers so I knew this image would be a hit and sure enough he loved it. I've coloured the Mo Manning Video Boy image with alcohol ink in hues that would work with the papers. It's still my favourite colouring medium.

I used my Dienamics 'Blueprints 12' square die which I'd previously cut but not used for another project, to mat the image. So I took my colour prompt from this paper. Gladly I found a lovely 6x6 Teresa Collins paper in a complementary shade on my work desk, from the 'He Said, She Said' collection. The colour worked really well with the DCWV Shimmer Mat Stack paper.

I diecut a square for the inside writing panel and used a Tina Wenke for Stampavie sentiment stamp to put the greeting inside the card. Stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa Ink. The front sentiment is from a Kaisercraft set called 'Life Sentiments'.
