Football theme

A masculine birthday card today, although it could be used for a female football supporter......there are a lot of us! ;-)

I used Memory Box 'Grand Happy B-Day' and 
Die-Namics 'Dots' dies.  The die cuts were done at the same time on black card, attaching the dies with low tack tape.  The football was attached with foam pads and tiny grey pearls show the flight of the football.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
Less is More Challenge #269 ~ Polka Dots
Cuttlebug Mania Challenge ~ Monochrome


  1. I love the simplicity of this card. The dots remind me of a football net. Have a great weekend, Cara x

  2. Very striking and also much more fun than I ever imagined a B&W card could be! Great concept, and really good layout. Love it!

  3. Great card for a chap Liz!
    Love the monochrome design!
    Thanks so much
    "Less is More"

  4. Oh I do so like this.

  5. A great card for a football fan Liz. The Happy Birthday die is so useful for men's cards. I have several to make this month.

  11. Fabulous masculine card. Loving the black and white and how you've done the sentiment x

  12. I love football too Liz and just about to watch my second match today and I really love your card. That HB stamp is so adaptable but I've not seen that lovely dots one before. Have a lovely weekend. Barbxx
