A Fair Cop


Here's a birthday card for a (female) police officer and it is probably very hard to explain to anyone who's not British.  But I'll try......

'Cop' is slang for police officer. But the phrase 'it's a fair cop' is (allegedly) what criminals say when they are caught in the act, and means 'Okay, I did it.'

So I thought it'd be fun to use this Polkadoodles police officer digi (coloured with Promarkers) and place it on a printed fairground background from a My Craft Studio CD. I added the words (playing around with the punctuation ) in Silhouette Studio.

I'd like to enter:
