Soccer Fun


I made another herringbone background for this card using shades of turquoise dsp and cardstocks which I embossed with a CB houndstooth ef. I searched through my doo-dad box and found a fun Penny Black pre-colored image to use with it, then cut it with a stitched square die. I added 2 layers of ribbon from my stash and 2 Lil Inker stitched sun dies in small and large, layering them with an orange snippet that was cut with a Poppystamps Holly and Berries die and popped that up on some foam tape. I added a little Copic color to the smaller sun die cut to add a little color contrast. I forget where I found the fun in the sun sentiment stamp, but it seemed to fit this card perfectly!

I'll share this with the Snippets Playground weeks #281 and 282 where snippets are the only requirement.

Thanks for checking in on this sunny Monday morning - I wish you a beautiful day!

Such a fun card, Carol! Love all the nest things to look at on this cutie from the herringbone background, the embossing, the ribbon and of course, that adorable hedgie image! I don't think I have ever seen this one but it's cute! Your pop of sunshine finishes this card off just perfectly! Nice job!!! TFS and hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day! Hugs~

Another of your super backgrounds, teamed with the cute hedgie image. I love his red footie boots. Your lovely die cut sun and sentiment are perfect additions.
