Bowling Glory

Today's card is for my Aunt who plays for the local bowls team. I thought I had better scour my flash drives in case I had something other than flowers to do for her & came across this fab image that I had purchased a couple of years ago :-)
The image was downloaded from CraftsUPrint & is one of Gordon Frasers kits. I just cut out 2 layers & layered them with foam pads.

 I followed the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. I have to say that I am so thrilled that they have carried on with the challenge blog as I find their sketches such a great challenge. The papers are 3 freebie stacks that I had - Sweet Wishes, Wild Rose Studio & Teresa Collins Fabrication. I added this great chain that I found in my ribbon box & created the Happy Birthday tag.

I decided not to add a smaller version of the image on the inside of the card but instead to make use of the flowers on the paper. Apart from omitting the chain the layout of the inside matches the front of the card x Clare x
