Summer Holidays

Good morning to you, it's Thursday again and that means a new challenge at Willow Sketchie, this week Claire has chosen the theme 'Summer Holidays' and this is my card:

Well, that's what my boy's do during the summer holidays anyway.

Claire has also provided us with this fab sketch:

Don't forget - you don't have to follow both the sketch and the theme unless you want to, one or the other will do just fine. I've sort of followed the sketch and the theme again this week.

I have used the Willow Designs - It's a goal digital stamp and coloured it with a combination of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front:

Card Recipe:

Papers:  Echo Park - Kickin' it digital paper pack
Card Stock:  Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
Tools:  Spellbinders - Classic Squares
Embellishments:  footballs from stash
Sentiment: LOTV - For Him Sentiments
