Happy Birthday Fella!

Hello Everyone!  Today my Grandfather turns 93yrs old and this is the card I made for him!  To cut a long story short, due to a speech error during my childhood, I've always called him 'Fella'.  Fella has ALWAYS loved cricket, as a young man he played and still loves to watch it on TV.  So, when I saw this stamp by Papermania, I knew it would be perfect for his card this year.  :) 

The base is made of green bazzill and layered with white and then a piece of dark green Basic Grey Marjolaine DP.  Next I added two panels of more Marjolaine (which of course when I added all the stuff over the top you can't really see that there are two panels, never mind!!).  I stamped the Cricket Player from Papermania's Nostalgia Pastimes in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (E000, E00, E01, E02, E11, E40, E41, G82, G85, C1) and cut it out with Labels 18 Nestabilities.  Next I stamped the sentiment from JustRite Stampers' Just Because set onto white and cut it out with the Happy Everything Mini Tag Kit die.  I adhered this to a piece of DP that has been cut with Ribbon Tags Trio Three and matted it with green bazzill cut with another of the Ribbon Tags Trio Three dies.  I've popped this up over a piece of white grosgrain ribbon.  (This card would also be perfect for this month's CopicOz challenge to make a sporty card using your Copic Markers!)

This is great! Hubby loves to watch cricket (or any other sport for that matter). How they manage to hit that ball being pitched at such a close proximity, I'll never know. I'm sure he will love it!
