Crown Bowls Crisis!

I really thought I would have trouble with this card because of the subject - I was asked to make a card with a crown bowls theme! Panic set in because I couldn't find a suitable digi anywhere - there's definitely a gap in the marget for more male sports related digis! Then I remembered that the Jolly Nation decoupage brand had a female bowler and I hoped they would also have a man - luckily they did and my local craft store had one in stock.

These decoupage images have a lovely comic feel to them - just the sort of thing a small boy would want to give daddy. The blue and green colour scheme has a sporty feel to it and I couldn't resist adding some 'masculine bling' in the form of coloured card candi. I also coloured his hair to make him look younger!

I've entered this card into the following challenges:

The Squirrel and Fox Challenge - make it sporty
Less Is More - colour scheme of blue and green
Come and Get It  - adult birthday
