Football and Xbox

I have made this card for my youngest son to give his brother for his birthday.  It combines two of his pleasures in life - football and Xbox games.

I have used papers from Echo Park and a stamp from the Simon Says Stamp All Boy collection, the sentiment has been computer generated. I used an EK Success punch on the edge of the panel and wanted to add some enamel dots but Laurence thought they were 'girly' so it has been left very CAS.

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

Dream it Up December Challenge - Quick and/or Cute (Quick)
Moving along with the Times - December Birthdays
Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes Birthday
Creative Card Crew Challenge 76 - Birthday with Sentiment
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 207 - Anything but Christmas
Not Just Cards Challenge 8 - Anything Goes
That's Crafty Challenge - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday Challenge - Inspiration from Something In Your Home (Xbox controller)

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and leave a comment, your company is much appreciated.
