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:
