103 Years Young!

Three years ago I made a card for a very special 100 year old lady who I see regularly supporting our local football team.  Well, today she is 103 years young, still going to watch the matches and still as amazing as ever!  As usual, her card is in the team colours of blue and white, with a football theme.  This time I've made a rocker card, with a good contrast between the colours as her eyesight is not too great.
I used royal blue pearlised card, die cutting two circles with Sue Wilson 'Double Pierced Circle' dies.  I scored the largest one through the middle, before folding in half to make the rocker part of the card.  I used a snippet of white card to die cut a slightly smaller circle and used just half the circle on the rocker base.  The football die cut is another snippet of white card, using a Dixi Craft 'Football' die.  The die also embosses.  I left the die cut in the die and I used black distress ink and a dauber to ink through the apertures of the die to make the patterns on the footballs.  The letters are Memory Box 'Alphabet Soup' die cuts, using some of the blue card left from die cutting the circles.  I adhered them starting in the middle to make sure I got the spacing right.  The sentiment in the centre is computer generated.
