Let's Celebrate!

Good afternoon bloggers, thank you for dropping by today. I've been a busy little bee and this may even be the first post of three today!! This card is for my B-I-L's birthday. He likes his x-box and other stuff like that so this image from Mo Manning is perfect for him. I've even coloured the chair appropriately although the skin tone won't be quite right seeing as he and my sister have just come back from cruising the western mediterranean! The flash has bleached the skin tone out on this anyway, it's slightly darker in real life. I've kept the card very simple - the two bps are from the polished stone collections and the text is computer generated and added to the two brown pieces before printing off. I've used sketch #7 from Sketch 'n' Stash because this fortnight they have given us the freedom to choose any from their past catalogue. I've had the image for a year and only used it once so I think it qualifies for neglected stash!

I'm also entering my card into these challenges:

I'm off now to make hubby a coffee - poor soul is in the process of trying to replace the garage roof but the weather isn't playing at all nice! There's no choice but to get it done before winter sets in though :(
I'll try to get back with the other two I promised but if I don't, I'll do them tomorrow.
