Football Birthday Card

It's my hubby's birthday today and I wanted to have a football theme for my card, using the colours of blue and white.

When I saw this pre-loved Tattered Lace 'Circle Stepper' set of dies being sold on a Facebook declutter page for such a good price, I snapped it up!  Actually, I'm not sure it was pre-loved as I think it had never been used!  It's certainly found a good home now. 😊  The large football die cut is layered on MB 'Stitched Circle' die cuts and the small footballs are peeloffs, stuck onto white card and fussy cut.  The patterned paper is from a Dovecraft 'Blue Skies' paper pack.

I am joining in the following challenges:

  12. What a perfect (and perfectly designed) card for the sports enthusiast. Love the circle shape and all the little 'goodies' you've used in the design of this card (I'd call this a soccer ball but I think you folks say it's football :-) That's a great die to create this effect and you've used it splendidly. TFS
