Cool runnings

Unfortunately this one is not in the form of a Jamaican Bobsleigh Team (sorry, poor joke but that's one of my all time favourite films so I couldn't resist the pun of a title!).  No, this is just a card for the birthday club at work the recipient of which is a keen runner....

I shadow stamped the papermania runner silhouette stamp to give the impression of him running towards us, did some simple matting and layering and finished with some brads and an embossed birthday sentiment on a faux ribbon.

There are quite a few male hobby/sport challenges around this week so I'm entering it into the following:

Make my Monday - Male sports/hobby

Secret crafter saturday - a card for a man 

Our creative corner - boys and their toys 

Everybody Art Challenge - Card for a Man 

And finally, as it's on kraft cardsock, I'm entering into the current Krafty Thursday challenge over at the spotted chick's hen house  and it fits with N for Neutral over at ABC challenge too
