A5 Card with Footballer

I'm in the mood for Christmas, but the challenge over at Shopping Our Stash was to use something already out on your desk, and this image has been lying there, all colored up and ready for some weeks now. Also with my younger sister having 2 boys, aged 6 and 4, she's in constant need of birthday cards for little boys. With the oldest one now at school and the youngest in kindergarten they seem to be invited to a birthday party every other weekend! So I felt I had an excuse for getting this sweet little footballer from LOTV not too long back ago.

I used DPs from Graphic45. I heat embossed the birthday sentiment and added a piece of yellow twine and a die cut cloud. I also decorated the inside with leftovers from the front. I always try and stretch my stash by cutting out parts that would be hidden behind panels, and I often use these parts to decorate the inside. It's also a way of keeping the card from being heavier than necessary.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Shopping Our Stash - #127 Use something already out on your desk
2) Send a Smile for Kids - Anything Goes for Kids
3) Wags 'n Whiskers - #117 Cards for Kids
4) Everybody-Art-Challenge - #253 Card For A Boy
5) Make it Monday - #167 Anything Goes
