One for the Boys

Morning! Not so nice out there today, a real chill in the air and plenty of clouds, but I won't let that dampen my spirit! ;)

Today I have a card to share for my nephew's birthday. He is 14, and XBox mad, so of course I had to use Mo Manning's wonderful 'Video Boy' image.....it's perfect!

I have coloured him with Promarkers my DPs are a digital set called Dinky Dino from Scrapbookingmad, (currently on sale at just 75p!)


I have matted and layered using Bazzill card and added some card candy too (I resisted the urge to add ribbons, gems or flowers, as I didn't think a 14 year old boy would appreciate that!!) The sentiment is computer generated, using 'Joint by Pizzadude' font.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Thanks for popping by.
