Football Birthday Card

Hi everyone!  My nephew, Caleb, will be playing football for the first time at the end of the summer, so I thought I would get him fired up by creating a football-themed birthday card!
Designer Angella Crockett
I have used a couple of challenges in the making of this card:
The awesome and extremely creative and talented Sophie La Fontaine was dubbed Queen for the Day on Thursday over at Splitcoast....I'm a bit late, but wanted to help her celebrate.  I chose this cute card from her gallery since I loved the layout and it allowed me to use this football stamp three times instead of one!!
Speedy the Fox's Friends' Challenge: Masculine Birthday;
Sentimental Sundays: "Rough Around the Edges"....I used tearing on the bottom and ink distressed around the designer paper panel;
Cards for Men: Happy Birthday.
Designer Angella Crockett
Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: Stampin Up 'So Many Sayings' and Stampabilities 'Football';
Cardstock: Stampin Up 'Really Rust' (retired) and Whisper White;
Designer Paper: SEI 'I'm An Athlete';
Accessories: Stampin Up Word Window Punch, Ribbon from Target $1 Spot, Brass Brads, Paper Piercer and template;
Size: A2.

Thanks for visiting today!  God bless!
