My husband likes nothing better than watching a cricket match, listening to a match on the radio, sitting in the cricket ground watching his home team Durham, reading a Wisden or looking through his vast collection of sport autographs and so on - so this LOTV image of the little cricketer was perfect for his 64th birthday card! (my hubby used to have hair a bit like that colour many years ago - not now!!)
It pains me not to use flowers and sparkly bits, but I made do with a red brad I found in the brad jar which I thought looked just a little bit like a cricket ball! My only other embellishment was some natural/brown saddlestitch from here. I used a LOTV round sentiment stamped in cocoa brown ink and cut with a scalloped nestie. The numbers were die cut with a Papertrey Ink die.
My card is based on this weeks' challenge sketch over at Papertake Weekly, where there is a fab prize up for grabs - please try and make time to pop over and check out the fabulous work by the DT - you've got a whole week to make your project based on the sketch and enter the challenge.
