Sweet pea stampers: for the men/boys

I'm excited to be joining the Design Team at Sweet Pea Stampers. I'm actually on Team B and today's challenge is being hosted by Team A, but I couldn't resist joining in, using Karen Middleton's 'soccer boy' digital stamp from Sweet Pea Stampers. From now on the challenges are going to be fortnightly and the challenge for this coming fortnight is 'for the men/boys'. Please go and look at the wonderful inspiration from the team and, hopefully, join in.

I based the card on the sketch given for The sweet stop sketches 217:

The papers are DCWV, ones that I've had for ages, probably eight years or more. I coloured the image with copics and tore round a perspex oval template colouring the torn edge with a red copic. I replaced the football on the image with a raised sticker one and added the other two and the football boots - stickers that came from The Works.

As I've used a Sweet pea stamps digital image and red, white and blue, this is also for One sweet challenge for July.
