Father's Day Footballer

It's Father's Day here in the UK next Sunday so I thought I'd best make the old man a card LOL! He's not a fussy or fancy kind of man, but he does love his football, so I pulled out this fabulous digi from The Paper Shelter, Soccer Star, and went for a CAS card for a change.

I'm entering this into Fab 'n' Funky's Challenge #219 and Charisma Cardz Challenge #12 both to make a Father's Day card, for Crafty little Fairies June Challenge to use spots and stripes and finally for Crafty Sentiments Challenge Anything Goes.

And here he is...Isn't he a cutie?! The Paper Shelter does fantastic boys/men digis which makes masculine cards so easy! I coloured him up in my dad's favourite football team's colours as well.

Papers: Brilliant Blue (Retired), Old Olive, Brilliant Blue Prints DSP (Retired) all from Stampin' Up, Football Patterned Paper from Soccer Star digi from The Paper Shelter, Copic X-Press It Blending Card
