Daisy and Dandelion Challenge 9#




It is my neighbour's son's B'day later this month and he is a keen Man United fan ! Why he couldn't support a fab team like Leeds United I'll never know lol !!
I made this card for him using my fab new Daisy and Dandelion stamps that I bought yesterday from Binky Crafts. I just had to get this set ! Perfect for boys big and small !! :-)
I followed the fab sketch by Clare for the Daisy and Dandelion Challenge I thought it suited this set really well with the football ! Am sorry Zoe I only realised after I made it that I'd made it almost the same as yours :-/
I coloured the image with copics in Man U colours and 3D'd him :-)I also decorated the inside ! I don't do this very often ! but to be honest I stamped the footballs and 'Goal' intending to use it on the front but it just looked too fussy, well, I didn't want to throw it away so stuck it on the inside :-) All the things, boots, trophy, football and text are stamped from the same set.I also used Anita's 3D glaze on the football under his arm. I kept this card clean and simple, I think Luke would prefer it like this !! Don't think he's appreciate flowers !!!

The red paper is a Funky Fairy's Papercrafts Cherish Collection download :-)

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
