Hockey Night in Canada

This is actually a bookmark, not a card that I made for my father. He keeps complaining that we all deliberately loose his place in his book. So I made him a bookmark with two magnets on the inside to grip the page so that the bookmark won't fall out if it book is moved.

The image is Zac from Paperworks Co. I just love this image. He's coloured in Copics and SU markers. Notice the little logo on his jersey. For a simple card, that took me hours to get it right. Dad is a major fan so I studying the logo and uniforms in great detail to be as accurate as possible.

Challenges this card meets:
Creative Card Crew - To Die For (the oval circles)
Creative Inspirations - On the Move (players are definitely moving)
Cupcake Craft - World Cup Sports
Simon Says - Photo Inspiration (Colour Blue and Ice skating for the ice in the drink)
Delightful Challenges - Summer Colours
