Karate Kid!

It was a very important day in our household today, DS aged 8 went for his first grading at Karate. Whilst his Dad took him, I stayed at home and quickly made a card. DD thought this was "a way bad idea - as it'll jinx him!!" Fortunately, he passed with flying colours and is now the very proud holder of a red belt.

I'm quiet pleased with the way this card turned out. However, I must buy some more Promarkers, as DS is a blondie and when I tried to do the hair blonde it went daffodil yellow - lol, so, I've blended it with cinnamon and he's kind of gone a strawberry blonde colour! I also need to practice getting the tones right on the hair!

Materials used:
Card Blank from The Works
Script Backing Paper - freebie from the internet
Red Paper - from my stash
Karate Figure - Sizzix die cut, coloured and shaded using Promarkers

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
