Time to Celebrate

Happy Weekend Everyone.

This is a card that I made today which I think would be lovely for a little football fan.  I have more than one in mind!

I would like to enter this card into the latest
 'I love Promarker  - make your own embelleshments' challenge.

The main embelleshment was made using a Flowersoft stamp from the Moments in Time range called 'Man of the Match.'

The image was stamped and  coloured with Promarkers  with the boys  standing on  a patch of grass  green flowersoft.

It was then cut out and shaped to make my embellishment before being fixed in relief with silicone glue onto  a shield shape embellishment  which was made by cutting two shapes with my  Cricut, one from gold paper and another slightly larger from white card and finished with gold adhesive stones.

The papers used were from my stash and the sentiment was made by stamping in black on to a plain matching blue paper which was then cut out and mounted onto another circular shape cut with my cricut, in white, and in turn layered onto a mat with vertical stripes to compliment the horizontal stripes of the backing paper. I finished it off with some card candy in a toning blue.

I hope you like it!
