Nephews birthday card

Hi all

My nephew Ahmed is celebrating his 16th birthday and I was stumped for ideas for a card... nearly gave in and went and bought one, that was until I saw the teen digi stamps at Mo's Digital Pencil Shop where she has some fab images for Teenz (boys and girls). I had emailed Mo for some advice before purchasing and got a prompt really helpful email back... so I would 100% recommend buying the digi images from Mo!!!

I actually really enjoyed colouring in this image as even a novice with promarkers like me could get some shading in!!

I am entering into the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Sketch (see below)
Crafty Creations - Celebrate
Raise the bar challenge - The older the better!

For this card I used:

Video Boy digi stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil Shop coloured with promarkers.
Digital sentiment which was a freebie (I will put where I got it from when I remember)
Papers: K & Company - Roam
Stars are cut from backing paper which is the first pack of papers I ever bought (a couple of years ago)
Scanned book page with Timberland logo overlayed
