Video Boy

Hope everybody has enjoyed the long weekend and the Easter hols. I am on holiday this week and have a few things planned with the girls and the grandchildren. We went to the London Aquarium today, my youngest grandson was fascinated, but I think he would have rather got in the tanks than watched from the outside.
My card this evening is one that I have made for my older nephews birthday in a few weeks. He's not into cutesy images and I thought this one was rather apt.

The buttons sort of reminded me of the symbols on the controller. I enjoyed using the sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp so much that I have used it again with a slight variation.


papers - papermania 'for him'
stamp - mo manning 'video boy;
buttons - local haberdashery shop
coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
