Happy Birthday Laurence

It is my youngest son's 16th Birthday today and this is the card I made for my eldest son to give him.  I always find it difficult to make cards for family and this was no exception, I eventually decided to use a Simon Says Stamp Game Controller stamp.


I coloured the controllers with ProMarkers and added enamel dots for the buttons.  The papers are from Lawn Fawn and I computer generated the sentiment.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Creative Knockouts Challenge 43 - Make it Masculine
The Pink Elephant Challenge 257 - Anything Goes
Cards Galore Encore Challenge 7 - Use a Digi or Rubber Stamp
Seemacrafts July Challenge - Childs birthday
Loves Rubber Stamps Challenge 110 - Anything Goes

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

I agree, Pauline, it's difficult with family members as we want them to be extra special and suit the receiver perfectly! I don't know your sin, but I know this would be a great design for my nephew who's got the same age. He likes games and skateboarding.
