Snooker Loopy

This card is for my father in law who loves his sport be it football, rugby, cricket, motor racing, snooker - it's seems as though there's nothing he doesn't like!!!!  Well that gave me quite a bit of scope as to ideas for his fathers day card.  I think this one's a bit different and loved the inspiration from one of of my magazines.  Here's my take on their idea.

Cuttle bug embossing folder - swiss dots used on:
Core'dinations card - vanilla cream
Tim Holtz distressing ink - barn door
The snooker cue was made from 2 x cocktail sticks stuck end to end and rolling card
around them and colouring with promarkers using the odd gold fine line peel off to finish off
Snooker triangle - brown funky foam
Snooker balls were made from on old Xmas holly decoration
