I love to think of nature
as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

Electrifying Birthday

Another multi-challenge card.  I loved the sketch from Card patterns this week.  I've had the gaming DP for a while and with a couple teen boy birthdays coming up, I thought it perfect to use along with the digital stamp, Video Boy  from Mo's Digital Pencil Shop.

I downloaded a template for the controller die from Deviant Art,   printed it on regular paper for a template.  Cut it out in black cardstock, outlined it with a silver paint marker, added lime green gem dots and silver brads.  The 'cable' is exactly that, part of left over television cable that my husband cut and spliced up for me.  Talk about a hubby who supports my hobby!

Stamps:  Digital stamp, Video Boy - Mo's Digital Pencil.
Paper:  DP:  High Score video paper - Moxxie.  Peacock Red faux leather paper from Hot Off The Press.  Black, lime green, red cardstock and black polka dot from stash.
Ink:  Marvy Pens. Light peach pencil for skin.
Extras:  Game controller die.  TV cable.

Ok, I don't know what I was thinking.  I was just about done with this post when while looking at the card I realized, I didn't color his skin!  Geesh!  So, it may not make the Card Pattern challenge but that's okay.  Of course, after I colored it I then had to rephotograph it.  Oh, for the love of art!
