CARDZ TV Birthday Card Challenge

Yay!!!  I'm finally getting back to participating in challenges!  I had a request from a lady to make a birthday card for a boy....with a game controller on it.  WOW!  So I went out to the Silhouette Online Store and found one and bought it, then had a brain freeze on what to do.  I decided to get some inspiration from others, so logged in to Youtube and searched "Birthday card ideas for game controller"....found this neat shaped card....and the BEST part, it had the site where to get a free download!  The site is www.birdscards.com, I looked through the free downloads and found it.  I downloaded it into Silhouette and it was a breeze to cut! I decided to make two different cards so she could have a choice, so I made one with the shape card and one with the Silhouette file.  The shaped card has the "buttons" raised up on foam tape so they actually push down.  Below is the shaped card:

 I recently got some CardzTV Stamps and used them on this....I LOVE these stamps!  The quality is so wonderful!  I was amazed at how nice the stamp came out!!  The second card I made I tried a homemade action wobble thing (found the instructions on Youtube) for the controller and it turned out really cute....I'm anxious to see which card she likes the best!  Here is the second card:
These were fun to make!  Hope you like them, too!  God Bless!!!
