The Paper Shelter # 116

We've had gorgeous weather here this week, I hope it's been nice were you are, makes you feel like doing things when it's nice, I actually tackled my nettle patch on Sunday and the garden now looks twice the size it was. Which means twice as much gardening, I must admit I'm a fair weather gardener, but once I get motivated and start I really enjoy it.
This weeks challenge at The paper shelter is
"Pink & White or Blue and White"
This is a new stamp called Mad about Video Games, I have a Husband and 2 Sons that all play Video Games so I think this image is going to get plenty of use.
I paper pieced this one for a change, coloured his skin and hair with copics, used a Little Claire sentiment stamp, nestie, blue gems, papers from DCWV and Grace Taylor.

Don't forget if you play with a Paper Shelter image you have a chance of winning this gift voucher, it's worth $30. If you play with a different brand then you have a chance of winning three digis of your choice.

I'm entering this in the following;

What a great image for a masculine card and I love that you personalized it and really brought it to life with the coloring, paper piecing and that baker's twine for the controller chord. Nicely done here!!! :)

Thank you so much for playing along with us at Top Tip Tuesday!
