Anyone for Rugby

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and enjoying the weekend.  We has a successful shopping trip yesterday to find my daughter's wedding dress for next June.  We knew she had found the one when she came out of the changing room about to burst into tears.  She looked gorgeous and I was so happy for her.  Now to start sorting out ideas for her wedding invitations.

I thought I would share a card today that I made for my nephew to give his brother for his birthday.

Jack likes rugby and plays for a local team on a Sunday so this image was just perfect.  It is a stamp from Papermania.  I stamped it onto white card using distress ink as I wanted to image to appear a bit vintage.  Used some more distress ink around the edges and then matted onto some cardstock.  The backing paper is from Paper Cellar that I have had for about two years.  The trophy was another stamp and I just added some colour with my promarkers.  The sentiment is from LOTV and the buttons were the finishing touch.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend especially is you are enjoying a bank holiday tomorrow.
