2012 Jenny's 60th Birthday Card

Afternoon peeps.  My card today has been my nightmare for the past few weeks.  A lady in our apartment block asked me to make her Daughter's 60th Birthday card.  Yes of course said Cathy, what is her likes?  Butterflies/Flowers/Vintage?  No she says, she isn't feminine at all and her life revolves around the local football team who she works for, tennis that she watches, badminton that she plays and scrabble.  She also wanted two of these on the same card!!!  HELP!!!  She only listed the other interests when I looked dismayed at the football suggestion.   My worry was that I couldn't make it look special for a special birthday.  I hope I have succeeded.

8 x 8 Easel Card - Side View

8 x 8 Easel Card - Front View
The digi images are "Tennis" from Kenny K and "Football Holly" from Digi Stamp Boutique.  Both have been coloured using Promarkers.  The bp's are freebies from Free Craft Downloads.  Ribbon and Lace are from my stash.  Football shield from Google.  Tennis Racquet and Ball from Sweet Pea Pollys Craft Things.  Sentiment is Computer generated.

Hope she likes this, I am so worried about it.  I will be making a box for it but will not make that until she approves the card.

Thank you for looking.
