Soccer Nut

Well another week is moving ahead and it seems my list of things to do just gets longer. The deer are munching on my garden leaves and the chipmunks are eating my spaghetti squash. It's frustrating to weed and hoe and plant and then nothing comes of it all. Hot and humid here and afternoon storms predicted every day this week. I took a break from my thank you notes today to make a birthday card that I needed. I love the way this turned out.


The image and part of the sentiment is Bugaboo Stamp's Soccer Nut. I thought this was recently released but I couldn't find it in the store. I colored him with Spectrum Noir markers and die cut him with Spellbinder's Classic Rectangles. The edge is a scrap of soccer ball paper. The black strip is punched with a slit punch and I threaded some green ric rac through the slits. The "happy birthday" sentiment is from Hero Arts It's Your Day stamp set.I added some black enamel dots for embellishment. I followed the Stella Sketch. This is for our nephew who loves to play soccer. His birthday is next Monday.
I am entering these challenges:

Tomorrow I am back to thank you cards, so stay tuned. LOL! Trying to play catch up with lots of things right now. Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Wonderful and again a great choice of image and sentiment. Fun card. Sorry about your garden and the deer problem. One puts a lot of hope and energy into a garden and yes, it is heart braking to see it ruined.
