Less is More Challenge - Week 7



Today I choose "Football". My husband and I are not fans at all but yesterday we had a visitor who is and as his Grandson is soon to be 11 and doing a lot of training for the under 12's I thought it appropriate.


I used my Cricut cartridge "Soccer" which is brillant for these sorts of cards cut the image from black pearlescant card - 3" high and shadow added a football embellishment and printed Happy Birthday.


Enjoy your day.
This is version 2. I have draw a fine line around to frame it. Thanks Chrissy for the tip. The sentiment is done with my design runner. Font is Chalkboard.

  1. Did you handwrite the sentiment Sandra or use a handwriting font on the computer?
    You were certainly quick off the mark today!
    I think this may be one occasion where a little framing may have added a little something to the image!
    Super card!

  2. I have a pazzles machine which cuts out any image and I hadnt thought of doing a card like this as part of a clean and simple card. Hope the weather is lovely in Loire - it usually is at this time of year if memory serves correct - enjoy your weekend x
