Red white and....

Well "just" red and white - Opus Gluei challenged us to do something in our national colours, and I actually did plan to finish an ongoing project of mine, that includes yarn. But alas still not satisfied with the finishing touch/detail on that project and I deemed it not fit to enter the challenge. Hmmmm... had already left a comment, that I would give it a go, so really felt like doing something, but what?!

Backed up all my files on my computer today, and while doing it, I eyed a freebie from Monibleaux Designs on Dude Time Doodles blog that was perfect: soccer, or football as we call it here, is our national sport, and one could always use a male card to go to the stash of cards for later use :o)

Where to place that football on the card? Ahhh... The sketch from this week's Mojo Monday Challenge was on the desktop of my computer - the place where I usually save something that I just might look into - and soon glue, COPICS, digistamps, paper, scissor and ribbon found it's way to my crafting area.




Entering my card to the following challenges:

Love the way you framed Rocco, and putting the ball at the top -- a real inspiration! Love the ribbon treatment and all the red. Great masculine card. So glad you joined us at Dude Time Doodles for the freebie and guest desinger challenge. Good luck!
