Football Crazy

This is the first time I have posted in what seems like ages, I took the time to catch up on some DT work over Easter, and then by eldest son came down with tonsillitis again, I feel so helpless because there is nothing you can do to help.

Anyway onto my card, this is a very simple card for my son to give to one of his best friends for their 16th Birthday:

I have used my Polka Doodles 'Not for Girls' CD, this was one of the first Polka Doodles CD's that I ever bought and I find myself reaching for it whenever I need to make a card for a boy.

I created the 16 sentiment in word using an image of a football I found on google, I cut it out with my spellbinders circle die and sprayed it with Crafter's Companion Spray and Shine before matting it onto a punched black circle that I had in my stash box.

The inside has been simply decorated using some matching backing paper from the CD:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Polka Doodles Challenge Week 14 - Big Birthdays
My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge 52 - It's a Celebration
Crafty Catz Challenge 127 - CAS
