Malcolms Birthday Card

I hope everyone has had a good weekend, especially as the weather has been so lovely. My hubby bought me a new laptop which arrived on Friday so we have spent most of the weekend transferring all my files and programs over which has taken ages.
I made this card today for our neighbour Malcolm whose Birthday is today. I am entering it infto three challenges this week.
As I have followed this weeks sketch at Inspirational Card Sketches blog which I rotated by 90 degrees so my image would fit on it ok. The image is a digi download called Jim from Digistamp boutique I am entering their challenge.
I am also entering it into Passion for Promarkers challenge as I have used my promarkers to colour the image in, with this weeks stated colours which were Berry Red and Royal Blue. The last challenge I am entering this card into is Cute Card Thursday challenge which was to add a tag somewhere onto your card or project. I have added a tag punched out using my Whale of a Punch deckled tag punch. I have put the backing card through a swiss dots fand distressed stripes Cuttlebug folders to add some texture. I have done the sentiment on my laptop and cut out with my circle nesties. Thanks for looking x
