Hope you have all had a good bank holiday weekend (if in the UK). I have had a lovely weekend with family. Not done a great deal but just spent time chilling and relaxing. Back to reality tomorrow as work beckons.
Before I show you my card for today I would like to share some exciting news with you. I am now a member of the Winter Wonderland design team. I will be joining the Snowflakes team and my first challenge with them is on May 9th. I am looking forward to sharing my first project with you and to getting a head start on my christmas cards.
And now onto my card share for today. This is one I made for my future son-in-laws birthday. He loves his football so this seemed appropriate.
I used an image from a Papermania stamp set that I have had for years. I stamped the image with distress ink onto a piece of card that I had distressed with distress ink and my distress tool. The Happy Birthday sentiment was done the same. The papers were in my scraps box and I also distressed these with inks and my distress tool. All the matting was done onto kraft card. I added some ribbon and card candi as embellishments.
