Card for Uncle Ivan

This card is for my Uncle who's spent most of his life in Canada.  I thought I'd use this older High Hopes image - Team Canada.  I've had it for a while but it's the first time its seen ink ... bad me!
I've coloured it with watercolour pencils ... oops went shopping and bought a few more of these :)  I've had a few brands of w/colour pencils before and thought they were just OK, but I LOVE these Derwent Inktense ones.
Clear gloss added to their noses.  Silvery peel off numbers from stash.  I kinda ran out of room for my sentiment but just about managed to squeeeeeze it in.  Taylored Expressions scallop border die.  Spellbinders circles.  Woodware corner punch.
