Epic Birthday

My boys are all avid gamers.  The Boy Oh Boy papers by Carta Bella are perfect for creating gamer themed cards.  I have about used up my stash...so if you know of any new gamer themed papers out there, be sure and comment with the details!  My card is based on the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday, Julee has three sketches up this week.  This is my take one-

I followed the sketch pretty exact, with the exception of matting my layers.  Gotta have a few layers!  After fussy cutting my game controller, I popped it up with 3-D foam for added dimension.  My Epic Birthday sentiment is stamped in Pewter Gray ink.  I stamped the Level Up sentiment in Crystal Blue ink and then lightly added Pewter ink to the bottom half for a two toned sentiment.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
Level Up Stamps-MFT
Boy Oh Boy Pattern Paper-Carta Bella
X5954 Pewter Cardstock
X6046 French Vanilla Cardstock
Crystal Blue Cardstock-Retired
Z2832 Pewter Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
