Brother-in-Laws Birthday Card

Hi Crafters,
 
It's my Brother-in-Laws birthday today and this is the card that I made for him.
 
Recipe
Image - An old image stored on my computer
Medium - Pro/flexmarkers
Paper - Paper Cellar 'Checks' Pad
MFT Stitched Squares Die
Marianne Designs Mobile Phone Die and Sentiment Stamp Set
Clearly Besotted 'My Hero' Stamp and Die Set
Grosgrain Ribbon
Enamel Dots
 
His job was office based a while ago but he does something completely different now so I thought I would remind him of this earlier career with this quirky image that I have had on my computer for years. I've coloured it with my Promarkers and used a Marianne D. mobile phone die too. The 'Brother' sentiment was stamped and heat embossed before cutting out with the matching die which cuts perfectly accurately. My next purchase is the corresponding female set I think as I really love these.
 
Challenges I'd like to enter:
Creative Moments - #73 Bingo (Diagonal- Ribbon, Image, Pearls(hope enamel dots count as pearls?)
Crafty Creations - #294 Four (4 enamel dots)
Brown Sugar - #156 ATG
Sister Act - #116 ATG
 
Not a very good start to the day here, it's raining! In fact it hasn't stopped since yesterday and looks set to be the same for most of the week :P
I really don't like the rain, thank goodness I haven't got much planned that requires going out this week. Hope the weather is better where you are and enjoy your weekend whatever you are doing.

Lorraine, now it doesn't happen too often but it's sunny here just now. I hope the rain eases.
I love this card, fabulous image and love the mobile too. Great colours and super colouring in too.

Have a great weekend, if the weathers poor that's more craft time in my book!
