Birthday boy

My youngest son turns 15 today - a rather scary thing truth be told.    I wanted to make a special card for him and turned to his favourite obsession for inspiration - Minecraft.    To be honest I don't know much about the game he plays except it involves spending hours on the computer so I went to trusty google for some sort of image I could use.   Turns out Minecraft is extremely pixelated so I used a picture I found and recreated it using tiny 1cm x 1cm squares of cardstock.   Despite being difficult to line up completely perfectly I am still fairly happy with how this card turned out.   It was definitely a labour of love - 100 squares of paper for the base and the little black pieces (which are meant to be a creeper) are popped up on dimensionals.     

Hope you enjoy looking.
