Iron Man

Last week I was asked if I could do a card, as one of the men who is a nurse in the Recovery Dept in work, was going to Austria and it was his last day in work the next day! The brief was Iron man from the cartoon story, as the recipient was doing the 2 mile swimming, 112 mile cycling, and a 26 mile marathon Iron Man challenge. I was asked for "nothing special," just get the cartoon Iron man and Austria 2012 on the card, as he had kept it to himself until the last minute.  The most unlikely man ever you would think could do something like this and he had been in training for 2 years for it.

Anyhow, I downloaded a picture of the Iron Man, an Austrain Mountain scene, and a sillouette of a man doing the challenge.  In PS I put the mouintain in the background, emboss and highlighted the sillouette, added the text.  I was in 2 minds whether to add his name here, but thought perhaps as he had kept it quiet, he may not want it here.  I was told he was really pleased with the card, I didn't see him as he was on a late shift.

 I am going to add this to the following challenges        Anything Goes        For the Guys - Sports        Sports with Sentiment       Sporty or Patriotic
