Keep Calm and Game On

Today we were paid a visit from the odd plumber the Lady Commander of Copics and I met a couple years ago on our vacation to the Mushroom Kingdom. Predictably, the useless princess got herself captured again by the giant lizard and the plumber thought that he had taken her to our neck of the woods. I assured him that I had spotted no such lizard roaming our lands, and invited him in to join us playing some video games, hoping it would relax him.

I started this card by stamping the Magnolia “Game On Edwin” image and colouring him with Prismacolor pencils. I decided he needed an extra life, so I stamped a little mushroom from the Lawn Fawn “Gnome Sweet Gnome” set and coloured it green, gluing it in Edwin’s hand. I then cut the card base using the Wrap It Up cartridge and the sentiment using the Robotz cartridge. 
The red buttons on the base were blobbed with Glossy Accents and the d-pad was popped up with pop dots, earning me +88 dimensional XP points.

On the inside I stamped the top sentiment using the Lawn Fawn “Harold’s ABCs” set and the bottom one with a Close to My Heart set.

I then made this little gift card holder using the Wrap It Up cartridge. Before I folded and glued it, I stamped the cardstock using the numbers from the Tim Holtz “Reflections” set.

This card will play in the following challenges:

The weird plumber was oddly good at Mario Kart and Mario Party, easily beating my sister and I. After playing a few rounds he seemed more relaxed and set out once again to find the missing princess. I'm certain that when he thinks he has finally located her, it will be revealed that she is actually in another castle. Just a hunch...
