Son's birthday

Why is it that family birthdays creep up and take me by surprise - I suddenly realised I needed to get this card done. Paul is a gym fan, so I think he'll like this.

I've used the sketch for Unscripted sketches 148:

Papers are English Paper Company 'men at work' and the stickers are Sandylion.

Colours are for Paperminutes 207: blue, white, black, also for For your inspiration 25 photo colours:
