Soccer Boy


Here is a card for a little fella, it is Soccer Boy by Mo (link on sidebar) and it's the first time that Ive printed him off.  Ive used FunkyFairys papers, QK football die, Doodlebug rub-ons and I PM'd my grosgrain ribbon to match the red card.  Ive seen big circles appearing on several sketches this month so that has probably influenced this layout.

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:

Ellephantastic Challenges which is to make something for a male.
Stamp Something where they are asking for a digi image to be used.
The ABC Challenge which is blue.

If anyone has any tips about colouring hair, please let me know!  Ive seen the shading variant for long straight hair but boys hair just ends up as a hat!

Awesome boy card Keryn. As you know I mostly make girl stuff. giggle. Speaking of girls, thank you so much for kind words about my daughter. Sadly she is growing up before my eyes. NINE already. Where did the time go!! Also love all the pup pics. I will have to get some pointers from you. We have a 7 month old cocker and he is a handful! lol

Great card Keryn for a footballing lad - wonderful image by Mo! You have put together a great layout - it all gels really well. I cheat with hair and go for multi media most of the time and add some Sakura after....Cheers Claire x
