A simple card for a man

Hello Everyone
Thank you for popping by. I appreciate it, and value that you take the time. I am so sorry that I am posting late today. Every appointment I had just seemed to take twice as long as it should! Anyway, nails done and a quick "mooch" around the shops too. 
Tomorrow night my lovely daughter is taking part in "Tesco Does Strictly" It's a big charity event that Tesco do every year. My daughter  (the professional - not!) has had to teach a Tesco employee a dance. In her case (obviously) Salsa. They, then compete with another 9 couples and the audience text their votes which along with other stuff raises money for their chosen charities for the year. Ironically (for us) the two charities this year are British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK.
So, on to today's card. I was asked for a card for a gentleman that loved sport but the person could not remember if there was any sport in particular. So I found some vintage photos of several sports and came up with this. I think it works

6x6 card blank
Script embossing folder - name escapes me
Distress ink - vintage photo
Spellbinders - Marvellous Squares
Spellbinders - large Classic Squares

See you Saturday
