Sketchie time

Morning everyone! Can you believe that we are already in the last part of April? Hasn't this year passed by quickly? I had Christmas just the other day... LoL

It's time for a new challenge from Team 1 over at Passion for Promarkers. And this time it's sketchie time. How fun is that? It's a nice and easy one too. You can have a lot of fun with this one.
As always I have a lot of cards to make for boys. There is always guys that needs a birthday card around here with two young kids going to their friends celebrating their birthdays. So this card is made for a kid in my oldest son's class. He has a new found love in, yepp you guest it! Football! How fun! I have only made 10 - 15 soccer cards the last year, and he was about to be the only one not into that sport... What went wrong? LoL Just kidding, I love it that they love their game. 

Sorry, the photo is a bit messy. Was a real rush to get it done and delivered. A few weeks behind after all illnesses we have had around the house lately. 

I coloured this little fellow from Crafters Companion in our local team colours which is black and yellow. But since I thought it would be too dark with black with tiny yellow details I went with the spare shirt of the team. Designer's freedom you know. I paired this image up with an older Magnolia stamp that has a football goal and audience on it. I place that in the center of the sketch circle and then used the footballer as a focal point. Designer papers are a digi down load from Echo park. I love that I get their papers digital too and I love the vibrant colours they use. Perfect for little boys. These are from to packs, one is called Mini theme Goal and the other is from Hello Summer (cloudy paper).

I used a die from CC Design to cut some grass and used an "8" as my decorations to this card. I have matched the inside of the card with the outside but personal writing in there so you just have to belive me. Anyway, I always love a good sketch challenge even if I have not gone with the same sized card as the sketch, I really loved working with this one. 

Our sponsor this week is Letraset who is offering a 6-pack of Flexmarkers to one lucky winner. How nice is that? I could really use a few new ones. 

Ok this is it from me for today. I hope you'll come and join us on this lovely challenge. 

Love n hugs

Great soccer card, Marie! Fab colouring of that sweet image and I love the background stamp - this would be ideal for all my boys' friends too! My youngest starts summer league in a couple of weeks, so then I'll have the 2 of them training and playing! Oh well!
