It's All About The Football

Hi Folks
This is a quick early morning post for me as I am getting ready to go to work.  I had a lovely day shopping with my daughter yesterday.  Got a few more holiday bits so quite pleased.  

Todays card is a card I made for my daughter to give to our future son-in-law for his birthday.  He is really into his football and I wanted to do something clean and simple.  

The image is from a stamp set from Papermania.  I stamped the image onto some white card using distress ink and just added a bit of colour to the shirt.  Not much to say about the rest of the card. Some matting and layering onto blue card, a stamped sentiment, some ribbon and blue gems.  

I did enjoy making this card but find the clean and simple style so difficult.  I do love my embellishments and patterned papers lol.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know if you think I have captured the clean and simple theme.

A great card Mags, I know what you mean lol! I also find clean, simple cards difficult too, I feel I need to fill the white spaces lol!! but this has worked really well. I find most men prefer the clean and simple look. Have a good day at work Hun.
