Birthday card for Malcolm

Here is a card I have made for my neighbour Malcolm. Its his birthday tomorrow.

I have followed the sketches over at Passion for promarkers and allsorts this week. The image is a new Lofty cricket stamp from Joanna Sheen as I thought it was appropriate with summer eventually here, which I have coloured in with Promarkers. I have then done from faux stitching with the thin end of a Marvey Le Plume pen around the image. I have cut the circles and scalloped circles out with my nesties and added a brad to the computer generated sentiment circle. The backing paper is from a masculine Dovecraft 6 x 6 paper pack.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
