Commissioned Birthday Card


I was asked to make a card for a girl who loves any kind of sport - whether she takes part herself or watches on the TV - but the card couldn't be too girly girly.  I found various sport images to make a collage and made everything large enough to fit on a 8x8 card.  I then used some un-used and un-loved See D's stamps for the words and images on the scalloped/distressed die-cuts.  I have coloured the images with Promarkers/Copics.  There was then some simple matting and layering, addition of ribbon and a insert made and the card was made and went down well with the customer and the recipient.

This card fits the following challenges:

Anything Goes - Colours of the rainbow
Fun with Shapes and More - Scalloped
Crafty Emma - Anything but a Christmas card
One Stitch at a Time - Surprise us
Stamps R Us - Anything goes
Creative Card Crew - Anything goes
Crafty Sentiments - Anything goes.
