Papertrey INKers May Challenge

I love this month's INKers challenge!  May's challenge is to CASE a card from your favorite designer.  Well, I love the Papertrey Design Team so this is an easy one for me. They are all my favorite!

I needed to make some graduation cards for several student assistants that work in our department.  One of the young men is totally into video games, so using Papertrey's Boy Basics: Game On stamp set was a no brainer.  And I remembered a card that Nichole Heady showcased during the April stamp release that I really liked.

Click here to see Nichole's card.

Here is my version:

I kept most of it the same, I just changed up the patterned paper and the main sentiment and eliminated some of the embellishments.  See how Nichole used the grid stamp on the base cardstock.  Genius!  I wouldn't have thought of that and yet it is the perfect touch.  I hope to be that good someday.

Cardstock: PTI Smokey Shadow, Kraft, Spring Rain, Summer Sunrise
Patterned Paper:  ?? (from my stash)
Stamps: PTI Boy Basics: Game On, Boy Basics: Simple Circles, My Hero, My Dad, Mini Scrapbook Series: Library Ledger, Scattered Showers (sentiment inside card)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark Watermark
Other: Fiskars Star punch
Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
