Return of the Karate Kid

Hopefully you've all had a lovely weekend complete with glorious sunshine. I've had a packed weekend with little time for crafting, but did manage to get this card together.

DS had a Karate grading this morning and I'm pleased to say that he managed to get his yellow belt. I only knew he was being graded on Tuesday and went into a bit of panic as to what I was going to do with regards to a card as I didn't want to use the same image as last time (despite DH helpfully suggesting that I use the same card and just replace the belt!!!). The lovely Sarah (aka Rainmac) solved my problem and posted me the gorgeous stamped image I have used - (Thank you so much). I also have to say a huge thanks to Peppop who sent me a fabulous digi image, which I intend to use next time.

Anyway, here's the card:

Materials:

White cardstock for base card - The Papermill

Black card - Tesco go Create (DD's stash)

Sentiment - printed from the computer
Card Candy - Craftwork Cards
Promarkers - Ruby for inking the edges
