Gamer Boy Birthday card (Kenny K image)

Hi everyone,

I hope you're having a great weekend, lovely to see a little bit of sunshine here in Australia, hoping there's more to come as we start heading towards Spring (1st Sept), yay!!!

This image from Kenny K was perfect for my son's Birthday card, he is obsessed with Minecraft, anyone else have this problem with their kidlets? I just don't understand the fascination with it but he loves it. 

My papers for this card are from Echo Park, I think the range was called "about a boy".
