Cute Card Thursday - Karate card

Here's my card for the 'Cute Card Thursday' challenge 61 'A Sporting Chance': I was asked to make a card for a boy who does karate so, after much searching for something suitable, I lightly traced a image of my footballer stamp in pencil then drew in pen the karate outfit to the same height but a bit thinner and then cut out the head of the stamped image and just used that over the top. I then threaded some thin ribbon through to act as a belt.

Voici ma carte pour ce challenge « Cute Card Thursday » avec le thème du sport : J’ai dessiné le costume de karaté moi-même et j’ai utilisé seulement la tête de mon tampon d’un garçon de foot.

Used: Whispers markers for colouring; PaperMania papers; Colorbox charcoal chalk ink for edging; PaperMania squares and frame; printed text using 'Torii' font and peel-offs (which say 'friend' and 'imagination' in Japanese kanji text).

Don't forget to have a look at my candy here - open until 31st May.
