Happy 50th Birthday BBQ card

Hi everyone,

I hope you're all well.

I thought I'd share the card I've just made for my brother's 50th birthday.
He's planning on building a BBQ area in his garden...

I've use my Tattered Lace panorama dies again. Theses really are proving to be a favourite of mine. The image is BBQ Bill from Dr Digi. I've coloured him using copics. The white panel at the back has been embossed using a Hoogie board so that it looks like white brick work (I didn't have an embossing folder for this). I also used the Hoogie to emboss the Kraft card which forms the canopy. 
I've added bunting, grass and a couple of decorations on the back wall. My brother collects fancy ornaments like frogs and gheckos whenever he goes abroad. I've finished off with a die cut sentiment and a plaque with his age on. 

I would like to enter this for the following:-

Thanks for visiting. I hope to see you again soon.

Happy crafting
