Vintage Football and some exciting news

Hi Folks
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.  

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.
