Challenge Winning cards

Game On

I was asked to make a card for a teenage boy who is gaming mad...

So after trawling the Internet for inspiration, I made him a card with the thing they use to play the games (a control?)

The main shape was traced and hand cut and I added various die-cut shapes for the buttons. To add a bit of texture, I used coloured Card Candy for the 4  brightly coloured knobs and some plastic string (scoubidou string) for the wire. I've used a die-cut red circle and metallic mosaic patterned paper for the background and embellished using a few flat-backed pearls.

I'm playing in the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments Challenge #234 - masculine
Creative Fingers #169 - anything goes
Cardz 4 Guys #227 - celebrate
Get Creative Challenge #83 - anything goes
Crafty Friends Challenge #117 - add embellishments
Brown Sugar Challenge #292 - anything goes
Double D Challenge - pearls gems or rhinestones
