I made this card about one and a half month ago for my youngerst son Philip on his 5th birthday. Soccer has become an obsession with both my boys, and Philip has also got lost in the ice hockey world. Were will this end? Anyway, as sports is the main thing in both their lifes sport related images is always welcome around here, and when Veronica over at the Paper Shelter sent me this totally wonderful image, my life was saved. He even comes in two typs of shirts, one striped (just like the one FC Barcelona used to wear) and one plain. You know the Paper Shelter is found in Argentina, and one of the worlds greatest players comes from that country, yepp! Messi it is and tell me a soccer fan that doesn't love him? LoL
However my little player is coloured like the Swedish team captain Zlatan. Also a big favourite around here. The designer papers are from Landstoken if I remember right. As it is for a young boy I have also kept the card fairly simple. I turned the dp around and found a few bigger soccer balls on that side, so some die cutting (the star die used for the border is from Magnolia and perfect for all boys cards) and I got myself a lovely soccer border paired up with some black, white and green card stock. Card candy representing balls in the corner, and a few alpha stickers that says "Happy Birthday" below the image and 5 for his years in the right bottom corner.
And as it is Wednesday it's time for a new challenge over at the Paper Shelter and this time we doing the easiest one. Not really a challenge, more of a linking party. LoL Anything goes for this week my friends. And as we normally get flooded with this challenge theme we will only be leaving one comment each for each entry from the theme. Normally you would get two, but all our "anything goes" challenges the team only has one number each to comment on. With that said, I do hope you come and play with us. We have our normal gift voucher up for grabs worth $30 if you play with our brand, the Paper Shelter products. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three (3) digis of your choice. Not bad is it?
Love n hugs
