A Card for the Lili of the Valley Challenge - Sketch by "Dawny P"

Good Morning Girls, hope you are enjoying your Sunday, todays card has been created for this fortnights Lili of the Valley Challenge "Dawny P's Sketch" I used this lovely little stamp of a little lad playing computer games, like most children my grandchildren are great lovers of these machines. Anyway Ive stamped it onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens, then cut it out with my rotatrim as it was to big for a Nestabilitie Die, Ive then mounted it onto a piece of beige card. The sentiment is another of my stash stamps, with this I did use a Rectangle dies and for the mount Ive used a larger one, before mounting this and the stamped image Ive used a inkpad around the edge to distress it.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card and one of three papers from the Papermania Masculine paper pack, this first one is a retro circle pattern, the second mount is a striped one, and the third mount is a all over sentiment paper, these were then mounted as the sketch shows, Ive also stuck a ribbon across the centre as this was also part of the sketch.
I will be entering this card into the following challenges:-
