My Grandson's Birthday


Our eldest grandchild and only grandson, Joe, now lives in Canada and we miss him a lot.  He loves his PS3 and would plays for hours if his parents let him.  He's always loved  purple so I coloured this image of Video Boy from Mo Mannnings Digital Pencil in a shade of amethyst.  I printed out the Pink Petticoat Kraft background paper and distressed with scissors the purple Bazzill card stock, a strip of shiny black card, a couple of buttons, some petersham ribbon and some card cardy to finish it off.  I hope he likes it.

I'd like to enter this is in the following challenge

Paper Cutz Challenge #42
