Sit back and unwind

Hello everyone

I've another special male birthday on the horizon and wanted to do something a little different than my usual football related card.  However, this young chap is probably watching the footie on TV and I've had to acknowledge the team colours with the blue and white combination.  I've paper pieced the chair and pouffe and layered up some of the rest (mug, boots, arm and leg!), although it's hard to tell from the picture. (Apologies for the wonky photo too!)

Items used:

Stamp and sentiment - LOTV
Coloured with ProMarkers and white Sakura gel pen
Papers and button - my lucky candy win from fellow blogger Kat a while ago
Dies - Spellbinders and Die-namics (numbers)
Ribbon and twine - Ribbon Girls
Glitter card from my stash

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
Passion for ProMarkers - Dies and/or punches
Penny Black & More Challenge - Anything Goes with Stamp & Die
Stamping Sensations - Anything Goes
Ribbon Girl Challenge - Use any image
