London Marathon & Aud Sentiments Challenge #26

My card today is for my hubbys friend who ran the London Marathon yesterday (Sunday).

I am entering my card into Aud Sentiments Challenge, the theme is 'Anything Goes'.

I hunted high & low for an athlete - runner- jogger - Marathon runner..... I could not find a digital image anywhere!!!

I ended up asking my DT @ For Fun Challenges for help & my blog hop teamies @ All creatures great & small. I followed one of the girls idea - to type 'Marathon Runner colouring page' into google, thats where I found the image I used for my card.

So come on all you digital designers... design a collection for everyone x
