World Cup Fever

Its not long until the World Cup now and my son asked me to make a soccer themed card for him to send to my hubby for Fathers Day. As soon as I saw CJ's fab images 'Soccer Boy' and 'Flam'en Soccer ball', I knew they would be perfect to make a fun Fathers Day card.

It was a quick and easy card to make, I coloured the images with promarkers and cut them out. I used 4 of the soccer ball images and left the flames on just one of the coloured images. I made the mini 'pitch' for the background with some plain green and white card from my stash and mounted the plain balls with foam pads. To make the flam'en ball and soccer boy stand out and give them some 'bounce' I attached them with some acetate which I scored to make a 'n' shape, sticking one leg of the 'n' to the base card and adding the image to the outer leg of the 'n'. I've tried to take a photo but its so dark and dismal here I can't get the acetate to show up at all.

I'm entering my little soccer boy into the following challenges:
Sew Many Challenges: make a Father's Day card without using the colour blue
Cards for Men: Father's Day
I love Digi: For my Dad
Pile it on: Quirky
Craftalicious: a new challenge blog with the  theme of 'New' (this is a new image to my collection)

thanks for looking
