Come on England!!

There are people that like sport.  That are people that don't like sport.  That said I still think it is important to support our country in sport if we can.  Tonight sees the World Cup football match between England and Italy.  It doesn't start until 11.00pm so depending on the result we may have cars driving around our town in the early hours if it is an England win or even if it is an Italy win as we have a high Italian population in the town.  Let's hope it is a good, clean and interesting match.  Come on England!!!

The basis of this card had been prepared for another image but this little chappie was another image I picked from my Paper Shelter win and is called "World Champion".  I have coloured my image in with my Graph'it pens and inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Chipped Sapphire distress ink.

The backing papers I have used I think are Papermania and the paper with the trophies is on is from the Paper Cellar.

I have finished the card off with a die-cut sentiment, red/white/blue card candi and some white seam binding that I coloured red/white/blue with my Graph'it pens.
