Bugaboo Soccer

Now why is it that most boys cannot seem to schedule themselves out of a paper bag?!  We have a business associate that is also a friend of ours.  His son's birthday is Sunday.  His wife gave him our party invitation two weeks ago, as he was going to see my husband.  Well needless to say, he forgot....until late Friday afternoon.  With a beg and plead to not tell his wife, change of plans - we now have a party to attend Sunday!

Dalton is on his first soccer team.  Soccer is one of my favorite sports, so I love to watch the kids play.  Especially when they all crowd the ball and move in a tiny herd!  When they get a little older, I like to show them how to slide tackle and watch their eyes light up when they realize that it is okay to do that!

I remembered a cute boy with a soccer ball digital image from Bugaboo Stamps.  You can look here to view digital stamps for sale from Bugaboo.  I also saw that there was a sketch challenge at Catch the Bug this week, so I used the Bugaboo digital stamp for the sketch challenge.  Here is Dalton's card:


The card base is Conqueror CX22 Diamond White, as well as the image paper.  The green colored papers are from Bazzill and were scrap pieces that I had on hand.  The DP was also from my scrap pieces, so I do not have the name.

I used Nestabilities to cut and emboss the image.  I used Cuttlebug Swiss Dots to emboss the lighter green layer.  I finished that layer with an EK Success Edger Punch.

I colored the image with Copic Markers and Stampin' Up! Markers.   The sentiment was computer generated.

I am not a huge sticker fan, but purchased a soccer ball when I could not find any soccer paper at two craft stores I flew in and out of today!  I had the ribbon and eyelets on hand.

I hope Dalton, likes his card and that he has some yummy cake at his party!  LOL   Thanks, for taking a peek at my card today.
