Mo's challenge #191

Fun in the Sun! (NOT!)

I know this doesn't seem to fit the theme for Mo's Challenge this week, but hear me out. I work with 12 and 13 year old kids, and towards the end of school I asked them what they would be doing during their summer vacation. Almost all the boys said they would be playing video games during their time off!
 No "Fun in the Sun" for them, I guess! 
I love the 'glazed over' look on his face! If you have gamers in your family, you know that look well!
I colored the image first, then found this perfect masculine plaid DP in my stash. I couldn't believe how well it picked up all the colors I had used!

Inside: "Now that I have your attention,  Happy Birthday!"

Image: "Game On" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Computer-generated sentiment

Tools: Copics, Silver metallic pen, Prismacolor pencil, Square punch,  Mounting tape, Tacky tape

Papers: SU! Gable Green, Only Orange, Blue (?), Neenah white, MME DP

Embellishments: Grosgrain ribbon, Natural twine, Buttons

Please join us in Mo's Challenge this week for a chance to win a $5.00 gift certificate to Mo's Digital Pencil. Remember to check out all the Teams' blogs for details on their wonderful creations!
