Kicking about

Good Monday afternoon folks

After a wet start the sun has come out here so Monday feels a little brighter. Today I wanted to share a birthday card I made for my son's friend - 
This is Oliver - kicking about from LOTV's latest launch and isn't he just perfect for those teemage boy cards. I will definitely treating myself to a couple of the others in the range. I stamped him onto Neenah card and coloured him with my Spectrum Noir pens and pencils - 

  • skin - FS2, FS4, FS9 and 089
  • hair - TN7, TN8, EB8 and 103
  • clothes - TB4, BGR3, BGR4, CT4, GB4, GB6, BGR2, 119, 117 and 086
  • bag - BGR4, BGR5, IG2 and 120
  • ball - IG2, IG3, IG4 and 119
  • ground - IG2 and IG4
  • sky - IB1

I also used - 

  • blue, navy and yellow core'dinations
  • Just for men pop dotty and on your birthday embossing folders (from Sara's signature collection)
  • Just for men Happy Brthday die (from Sara's signature collection)
  • Tonic layering squares
  • Spellbinder's 5x7 matting basics

I embossed the core'dinations and then sanded it back to reveal the core.
OOps, should have let the glue dry before photographing!! (I was at the last minute as per usual).
I would like to enter this card into the following challenge -
