Going Bowling

A good and easy sketch this time over on Cards for Men:
I've used a great image from Dude Time Doodles - Larry Lane, who has been coloured with Promarkers. The three little bowling pins I've had for ages; I'm a bit of a hoarder and don't like to throw anything away as it could come in useful one day! These are from a cracker and I knew they would be perfect for a bowling card one day!

The papers are from Funky Hand - Girls and Boys and again I'm using up my scraps! A bit of inking and faux stitching and the card is complete! You'll have to excuse the bit of glue that you can see under one of the pins - Jacob was much aggrieved that I'd used them and moved it!
