Bowling Alf

I saw this DigiStamp Boutique image and thought (very bad of me to stereotype so much whilst card making- I'm not like that normally) of someone I know who is retiring soon. He won't be taking up bowls- or at least I doubt it.  Probably lawn bowls is much more of a young person's game anyway- it was in the Commonwealth games the other day wasn't it?
I had great fun colouring Alf and decided to make him into this fairly simple card.  Loving making the 'torn out page' look the last two weeks- hole punch and a pair of scissors not a punch or die so a bit handmade :-)
I will enter the card into this weeks Retro Sketches challenge.
I have to confess I don't know much about bowling or know anyone who does it and so you will have to excuse me if I have miscoloured the bowls themselves.  The sentiment can be found here
Visit the DSB shop before the end of the month to get Alf while he is on offer!

FAB card, Louise. My husband used to bowl for his county and I seem to remember the bowls being either a very dark brown or black - they're made from lignum vitae wood (or certainly used to be).

Happy Friday
