But in my heart, I am a gamer

Sharing a card featuring the fun Gamer image from Tiddly Inks.

I turned the TV screen into a shaker panel and added a background I printed with the birthday sentiment.  Was a bit tricky given how thin the sides of the TV are but worth the effort I think.

Mounted the whole thing on a very CAS background where I added interest through layers of coloured cardstock ~ this would be why I burn through ATG tape!  The colours may look familiar to anyone who follows NRL football here in Australia and were chosen as the young Master this is going to is a big Panthers’ fan.

The layout is from the current sketch over at Atlantic Hearts.  The stripes on the sketch reminded me of a footy jersey hence going with the Panthers’ colours.  My nephew is also a gamer (aren’t all 12-year-old boys?!) and the image is perfect for the current challenge at Inkspirational.

Crafty Cardmakers are looking for birthday cards, a nice simple challenge, and I’m also linking my card up there.

Oh boy, the more I look at the pic of the card the more crooked the centre panel looks!  Must step away and stop looking at it before I am tempted to try some remedial action and end up ruining it.
