iPhone...gotta love it

I was so scared of colouring this stamp as the image is so iconic and it is for a teenage boy that they are bound to spot any errors. I had to have my iPhone in front of me whilst I coloured it and had to search for the apps to check the colours and discovered an awful lot are blue, green or grey, how very unexciting lol.

I tried stamping the sentiment straight onto the paper but it was lost so whilst looking for the sentiment strip I found this one and thought perfect, the mini iPhone was an after thought and I wish I had done it in white or lighter colours but too late now.

I used mostly snippets on this card so am entering the snippet playground, the image was stamped on a snippet and apart from the printed paper no whole sheets were harmed in the making of this card.
