And Epic Birthday Card

Happy weekend! So, I broke in my Game Controller dies and Level Up stamp set from My Favorite Things today, yay! I bought this duo last year some time and never got around to opening it up--anyone else guilty of such a thing? I'm so happy that I finally did because this card was so much fun to make and I think the recipient, a friend of my hubby's (yes, my husband still plays video games--ugh) will just be tickled pink by it! For inspiration, I followed along with this week's MFT Sketch Challenge #253 below. If you have some MFT stamps or even if you don't, you're welcome to join in this week's challenge too!
And here's my take on it
Isn't it too fun?! I think so, hehe. I inked the "buttons" up with Versamark watermark stamp pad and then heat embossed over each one with SU! hologram highlights embossing powder because it was the closest thing to clear that I had. I actually like how it turned out with the extra sparkle. :) Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope your day is EPIC!!!
