Guest Designer at Fussy and Fancy Friday

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  Looking forward to the weekend as we are going to my Sister's later for the weekend.  My daughters are also going with us so it will be nice to spend some family time and to see my two nephews.  We won't be back until Sunday so I apologise in advance as I won't be able to visit your lovely blogs until I get back.

A little while ago I was invited to be a guest designer over at Fussy and Fancy Friday challenges.  Thank you so much to them for asking me and here is a card I created for their current challenge theme which is:

I went with a football theme and decided to go monochrome.  The image is a Papermania stamp that I have had for ages.  So handy for any male themed cards and football fans.  I didn't do any colouring of the image and simply mounted it onto black card after inking around the edge with black soot distress ink.  The papers are from my ever increasing scraps box.  Again, mounted onto black card and inked around the edges.  For embellishments I added some netting over the background papers, some card candi and some little shoe buttons that I had.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

Thanks for popping by and hope you will pop over to Fussy and Fancy Friday challenges and enter the challenge.  

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Whimsy Stamps - Masculine
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes

Really like monochrome for male cards, and the three themed papers look great behind the footballer image. Great card - perfect for our challenge this week in TMR.

Hi, Mags,
I really love this project! I don't think it would have been near as powerful visually had it been done in color. This project was supposed to listed among our Honorable Mention and I failed to include it in the orginal post. I will correct that mistake today! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful talent with us week after week here at 613 Avenue Create!
Chana, Owner
