Good morning all 
and hi to all new followers 

Good news 


have a new challenge I am on the new team A 

To make the card I used a digi stamp 
soccer boy by Karen Middleton 
you can get this digi stamp from sweet pea stampers   click here 
I coloured my stamp with promarkers and mounted it on to blue and green card and wrapped some green twine around the bottom part of my topper 
I made an easel card out of the blue and green card and stamped a happy birthday sentiment on the bottom part then I made my stopper out of green card and wrapped some twine around it then foam pads on the back and placed on the card I added some shaped foot ball buttons on to the stopper part and I added a shaped foot ball button on to my topper
 my favourite things in card making are digi stamp twine promarkers  and shaped  buttons  
when making this card it reminded me of when my son use to play foot ball on Saturday mornings for a local kids team I used to stand on the side shouting and getting wet and cold lol 

here is my DT card 

I would like to enter this card into some challenges 


Thanks for taking the time to look and leave a comment 
happy crafting day to you all
