Commissioned card for 13 year old

I had a request for a card for a boy's 13th birthday - I was told he liked dogs and cats and playing computer games.

I downloaded Mo Manning's 'video boy' and coloured with copics, mounting on orange card before mounting on the K & Co 'rough and tumble' background paper.

The date and sentiment were done with my dymo letratag. The numerals were from Paperchase.

This is for:

Paper players 52: clean and simple
Stamp insanity 63: keeping it clean and simple
Aly's 44: all about kids
Shelly's terrifically thrilling Thursday: snakes, snails & puppy dog tails - a card for a boy
Wags n whiskers 56: one for the boys
Mami doodles 38: card for a boy or a man
2 sisters 44: for a guy
Freshly brewed 49: it's a guy thing
Papertake: dads & lads
Deep ocean challenge 1: anything goes

Mr Popper's penguins

Since last Monday on 365 cards the theme has been Movie week - I didn't start the challenges till yesterday and worked backwards, so I've now reached Monday's prompt, which is Mr Popper's penguins for day 105 - the easiest of the lot.

I used a blue card blank and tore strips of hammered white for the snow. The penguins are Personal ipressions 'peguin fun' and the sentiment stamp is from PI 'stay cosy this Christmas', all designed by Lindsay Mason. Just a little colouring and the card was finished - the hardest bit was cutting out the penguins.

This is also for:

Cards for men 12: blue and black (hope there isn't too much white to qualify for the challenge)
Nadia's challenge 8: black and white + 1 colour
Christmas stampin all year long: black, white and ??
Some odd girl: white and colour pops
Jingle belles: all bundled up - lots of layers
My time to craft 145: Xtra images - more than one image
Oldie but a goodie 21: where in the world - Antarctica (although penguins also live in other countries) - the stamps are more than six months old
Cheerful stamp pad 20: things with wings
One stitch at a time 67: things with wings
Sweet stampin: things with wings
Moving along with the times 103: inspired by a song - I'm dreaming of a white Christmas (no, I'm not really!)
Lollipop crafts 41: inspired by a song
