80th birthday card

This card was made for one of the ladies in John's blind bowling club. The background is taken from a photo of Danson Park bowling green, where the club plays in the summer months. The bowls lady was stamped with a Personal Impressions stamp for Paper Nation, colouring with spectrum noir pens and cutting out on my Scan n cut. Stitched ribbon, sentiment and numbers from stash.

This is for:
