Bowls

Welcome to my latest follower, Debby.  Please visit her blog A Scrapjourney for lots of inspiration.  

The caretaker at the school where I used to teach will be 80 years old next week and he is still doing his job! His main hobby is lawn bowls, so I decided to make a bowls scene.
  The grass is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder 'Forest Branches'.  I used three dies to create the background scene, Lil' inker 'Cloud Sky', Poppy Stamps 'Picket Fence' and Die-namics 'Fresh Cut Grass' (which you can just see behind the fence).  The image is a digi stamp by Just Inklined which I coloured with Promarkers and then cut out, before attaching with foam pads to give dimension.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
