Soccer Birthday....

Hi there Susan here....

Its Thursday again, the weeks are going so fast!!! This card is my last one as being a guest designer for Digi Doodle Shops Best. I would like to say how much I have enjoyed being part of their fabulous team and thank you for having me this month!!!

Over at Digi Doodle Shops Best another challenge has started, the theme is 'Distressed'. Its such an easy challenge you can distress by making the edges rough or distress with inks etc... come on over to Digi Doodle Shops Best for full details of the challenge and join in the fun.

I used a fabulous sketch from Sketch Saturday. The backing papers for my card are from The Paper Mill Shop, the football pitch is from Joanna Sheens CD Messy Rabbit. All edges have been distressed.

The brads and football buttons are from my stash.

This fabulous image is from The Digi Doodles Shop, and is called Boy Soccer Player. He is so adorable and reminds me of my Grandson when he was little!

I used Pro-Markers to colour him and then cut around the entire image and layered him on top of the football Pitch. All edges of the topper have been distressed to match the rest of the card, and the theme!!

My sentiment has been made on the computer, the edges have been gently inked and distressed.

I am entering this card into the following challenges

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.

Love Susan
