Footy George

This is the card I have made for a special friend's birthday next week.
I have used the football image from the sporting george collection from Charmed Cards and Crafts. This download comes ready coloured or transluscent and I chose to use the coloured one. 
I have chosen the sketch from Sketch Saturday # 159 and followed the recipe from allsorts challenge week 107 - Recipe for the boys. The recipe was 1 Backing Paper, 2 Punches or dies and 3 buttons. I used a corner punch on the blue card pannel and distressed the edge with blue ink. The image has been matted with a nestie. I have added ribbon and silver sentiments as accents.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Tatty Teddy Father's Day Card

Hi everyone, long time no type. Bet you all thought I had vanished into thin air!!! Well I haven't, I just haven't been making much in the way of cards recently and if I have they have just been quick makes and didn't take a photo. Well i'm back now and intend to make a few cards a week as I need to have my stash built up and also get those all important christmas cards made. 

Well here's the first card I have made. I have used one of the Tatty Teddy Decoupage kits for this card. I know I haven't had to use my imagination much but this kit was perfect for my Dad for his Father's Day card. I just love Tatty Teddy and adore this range of products from DoCrafts.

Hope you like him as I do. I love how this card has turned out even though it was a quick make. I have shaped the decoupage slightly and used glue gel for the depth. I have matted a couple of the sentiments onto some silver card stock and a silver sentiment peel of too.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
