One card, two challenges

I made this card last Friday for my neighbour's little boy's 6th birthday. All kids had a great time at the Hollywood Bowl playing two games of bowling!

This is the first time I used this George stamp from Elzybells. Sadly Elzybells is closing down and all their stamps are 50% off. Unfortunately George is now out of stock. But if you like their stamps, you better be quick. As you need to get them while you can!
OK, back to the card. I used water colour pencils to colour in the stamped image. All background papers and border are from Cardmaking and Papercraft's free summer paper and docraft's Daisy & Dandelion Picnic Patch collection. Here is a closer look of the image:

I am entering this card for Cardmaking and Papercraft's Sketch Challenge. The sketch is quite easy to follow and I like it.

I am also entering The Play Date Cafe Challenge 42 by using the colour combination of dark brown, green and beige. I have to say for a million years I would never use these colours together. Now I made this card and I think I am starting to like these colours together. Quite masculine, great to use on men's cards!

It's getting really late now. Better get off to bed. Sweet dreams!
