Birthday Footballer

I made this card over the weekend for my cousin's little boy who has his birthday next week.  The image is a Pollycraft one called 'Skills' and I've used a black and white colour scheme because my cousins husband and their three sons all support St Mirren.

The paper I've used is from Craft Creations and the sentiment from Craftwork Cards.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

CRAFT Challenge - 'sport'
Inky Impressions Challenges - 'let's hear it for the boys'
Passion for Promarkers - 'for a man/youth'
Here Come the Boys - 'monochrome'
Craft Your Passion - 'hip to be square'


  1. Awesome card...he's sure to love it. The black and white is so dramatic and eye-catching. Love the black matting to make everything pop. Great choice of images. The white space really makes it stand out. Thanks for joining our Hip To Be Square challenge at Craft Your Passion Challenges. I hope we see more of your art soon.

  2. Am sure he will be thrilled with it, it really is gorgeous. Just love the black and white together xx
