Get Well, Football Fan!

If you follow my blog, you may remember that I made a 102nd birthday card last month for Kitty, who is still an active football supporter.  Well, I heard yesterday that unfortunately Kitty had a fall a couple of days ago, fractured her hip and is recovering from her operation in hospital.  As I wanted to make a card to catch the last post yesterday, this card was made in less than 20 minutes! 
As usual I made her a card with lots of texture and contrast in colours so she can see it easily.  I know she will appreciate and football themed card in the team colours of blue and white. The die is a NBUS one which I saw used on Janice's blog HERE, which is a really good size for a focal point, especially for someone with poor eyesight!.  The embossing folder used is by Crafts Too.  I die cut the football in black card, layered it on white card and attached it to the card with foam pads. (The thick black line at the bottom of the football is the shadow.) Small, white, punched circles were added to show the flight path of the ball.  The football looks a bit too large for the card in the photo, but it looks fine IRL
