Grandad's 80.

Morning -  Its Sunday so its time for a Dr Digi card. This morning I have stuck with the current challenge theme of Sport as there are so many brilliant images that fit this theme. I was asked to make this card for an 80TH brithday for a Grandad who loves football. Where else would you find such a perfect image than this one which you can find here.

I used a strip of wood effect paper from Crate Paper DIY Shop down the side and then cut a panel from of the sky paper from Crate paper Maggie Holmes collection which I mounted on kraft card. I used a white fence die from Marianne designs and also a grass die from Joy of Crafts which I cut from Doodlebug paper.
The letter stickers are from Websters Pages and I die cut the Happy Birthday greeting from red mirri using a new Lawn Fawn die which I suspect I will use a lot!! I also used a little glaze on the glasses to make them shine a bit.

I used these promarkers & flexmarkers to colour the image -
Skin - Antique White, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice.
Shorts & Boots - Cool greys.
Ball - Tan, Cinnamon & Raw Sienna.
Clothes - Red, Poppy, Ruby & Burgandy
I used a little Icicle to shade the white areas.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
