Anyone For Bowls?

Good evening all you lovely bloggers!
I was asked to make a Good Luck card for a ladies bowling team who 
qualified for some important heats in Ayr, Scotland.
Not knowing much about bowling, I trawled the internet looking for 
funny images & perhaps a joke or two about ladies bowling!
I didn't find any suitable jokes but I did find the image below!


I imported it into my graphics programme & played about with it, 
adding a frame of some text, shamrocks & circles.
I then printed the image on to pearlescent card stock.


I printed the image out twice & decoupaged the shamrocks.
I also cut out the centre circle with a nestie & adhered it with foam pads
to add some dimension.
The card base was cut out with a Grand Scalloped Circle nestie.



I added a triple ribbon bow & a little mulberry paper rose!
A fairly simple card but effective none the less!
Thanks for dropping in!
I'm off over to Feline Playful to look for a couple of challenges to enter!
