40th Birthday Card

Today, I am sharing the card I made for a friend and neighbour who
celebrated his 40th birthday this weekend.
He loves sports and is an amazing triathlete, so I wanted
to make him a triathlon themed card.
I made the backing paper by typing the triathlon words
'' and printed in pale grey.
I found the triathlon image on the internet.
The numbers I die-cut in black card and also black fun foam
to give some dimension.

The products I have used are:-
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Squares and Large Deckle Edge Rectangles
Number and tag die - Purchased from eBay
Sentiments computer generated
Home made card candi
