A Birthday Card for my little brother...

Ok, he's not so little anymore...  He's turing 24, and he's taller than me.... but he'll always be my baby brother! 

He's a big video gamer, and I saw this image at Mo's, so I couldn't resist getting it.  I also happened to be at AC Moore the other day and found this AWESOME paper by Moxxie.  It's video game controllers on one side and tetris on the other side.  So I used one sheet of patterned paper for this card (and paper was 40% off)!



Inside:


Patterned Paper - Moxxie (double sided) 
Solid Cardstock - The Paper Co
Stamp - Mo's Digital Pencil "Gamer Boy," Studio G Sentiment
Misc - Bic Mark it Markers, Nestabilities Circles

Challenges:
1. Digital Pencil Too - Sketch
2. Quixotic - cards for men
3. Roses on Paper - cards for men
4. Cards for Men - green
5. ABC - O is for one designer paper (can be double sided)
