Inspirational Card Sketches 38 & Creative Insp 31

I'm pleased I've managed to fit in this week's sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches. My friend asked me for a rugby themed card, hopefully this will be ok - men's cards can be tricky can't they? It's for her little girl's uncle, so it also fits with Creative Inspirations theme of family (although it's not actually for my family so hope this still counts lol).

I've used a 'George' digi stamp from Charmed Cards & Crafts, coloured with promarkers. The fab stripy paper is Bo Bunny and the (very!) green cardstock is from a DCWV Christmas cardstock stack. I've lightly edged the papers and image oval with distress inks, added some black ric rac ribbon, a computer generated sentiment and lots of buttons - they seem to be my latest 'thing', I'm using them a lot lately!
