I demand a recount!

This is a fun card for my FIL who will turn 64 on Monday. Since he is a bit of a joker I always try and make a fun card for him.

The brilliant digital image and sentiment are from Bugaboo, coloured with Letraset Promarkers; the background paper from BMD; it may not be clear from the photo but the sentiment is on a Papermania Mini Card Spring, which gives the card an even funnier look; the bunting was made with leftovers from my stash.

Let's have a look at this weeks challenges:

The Pink Elephant - Stitching
Fab'n'Funky - A Stitch in time
The Shabby Tea Room - Polka dots
Crafts and Me - Blues and greens
