Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting . . .

Sooo, this evening I would like to share with you a card I made this morning for my brother-in-law's upcoming birthday.

I bought the stamp from the LOTV shop last weekend, with my brother-in-law in mind, as he does something marshall-artsy, and when I saw the sketch on the LOTV ideas to inspire website this morning, I was inspired.

I stamped the image using black versafine and then coloured the image with promakers.  

I die-cut this to a circle and then die-cut a scalloped circle from red card.

I had decided to use my new LOTV  cakes and candles papers, as though not originally bought for this card (I bought them because I liked them), they are perfect for boy/man cards.

I stamped a sentiment from my stash using red memento ink, to stick with the theme, which I layered onto blue and then red card.

To finish, I added a blue gem to each corner of the card.  I was going to use red gems, but I couldn't find them, then they appeared two minutes after I had finished the card . . . typical!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Happy Crafting!
