So I'm sending a birthday card to a child in Nicaragua.
On the front of the the card it shows a footballer scoring a goal.

What id like to say is....

The picture on the card is you scoring a goal.

Can anyone do that? I don't trust googles versions.

Thank you in advance.

El dibujo/la imagen por la carta es tu, marcando/notando un gol.

Choose from the two options for picture and scoring.

In Spanish you wouldn't say the photo on the card is of you scoring a goal, you'd say something along the lines of, this is you when you score a goal, in the photo on the card - which in Spanish is
Este eres tú cuando marcas un gol, en la foto de la tarjeta
Felicidades

Felicidades being happy birthday, feliz cumpleanos is correct for happy birthday but Spanish speakers most often say felicidades as the less formal greeting. X

En la foto de la tarjeta sales tú marcando un gol.
(Spanish from Spain)
As pp said “foto”is photograph if you mean drawing then it’s “dibujo”

This isn't correct, it's from google translate.
What this actually translates is the drawing or image for the card(doesn't make sense) is you,to dial, or dialling, a goal.
The verb isn't correct, Marca is "to score" or score, marcando is not the correct tense and has a different meaning.

You're most welcome ❤️
Aw thank you! I studied Spanish at gcse, then as level, though sadly had to leave - and just continued to practice it in my spare time! I am currently teaching my 6 yo some basic Spanish, hopefully we can get over there sometime soon! Passion for the language, I think it's Just beautiful!
