Commissioned Birthday Card


A customer wanted a card for her grand-daughter and as we used the topic of Goth for her daughter's card to her niece the thinking cap had to come on.  In the end she said she liked football so as I had no images of girls playing football off I went to Crafts U Print and found this lovely bright and cheerful image by Gordon Fraser.  I didn't have any suitable backing paper so I made by own by using a little football See D's stamp and stamping with black Versafine onto pink card.  The card is simply finished off with some faux ribbon with stitching, some spotty ribbon, an insert, a sentiment off the computer, stamped the word "footie" which also came in the See D's stamp set and some gingham ribbon.

This card fits the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Dieing for a punch
Pixie Dust - Stitch it up
Crafty Emma - Anything goes
One Stitch at a Time - Girlie or colour scheme or both
A Crafty Little Place - Anything goes.
