Footie Birthday card



Sarah is our host at Allsorts this week and would like to see cards 'For the Guys' our sponsors are Cuddly Buddly and Digistamp Boutique.

So it seems only appropriate that my DT piece is the card I created for our youngest son whose Birthday it is today...................Happy Birthday Alex.

Like me he is a keen Liverpool supporter and I thought this design which I came across on Pinterest would fit the bill perfectly. I have used my Sizzix hexagon die, it's one I bought some time back but not found too much use for it so far, but it works perfectly for creating the football effect on this card. The white section are embossed with Swiss dots, some little banners, a computer generated sentiment and a football button.

Happy weekend all.
