Utah Divas International - Saturday Sketch Challenge

Hello Friends,

Time yet again for our Utah Divas International Sketch Challenge.  Here is the sketch we were given for this week.

This is the first time ever and probably the only time that you will see anything on my blog that is NOT a Stampin' Up! product.  There are not many things I love other than Stampin' but football (soccer as it is known to my American friends) is one of my passions. I watch it often and truly miss seeing live games back in England. I was so excited when I gave birth to my son (only boy of 4 children) as I knew this little kiddo would play soccer.

Due to the fact that England and the USA are playing in the World Cup today - I just HAD to use a cute embellishment I bought absolutely years ago. 
Here is what I came up with

I knew I would use red and white for the card.  They are of course the colors of the Engish flag.  I believe this is the first card I haven't used an ink pad. 
Card Stock: Real Red, Whisper White
Embellishments: Real Red 3/4" Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Full Heart Punch, Heart to Heart Punch, Metal Edge Tag.
The cute little soccer player and ball was bought at a local craft store.

Here is the middle of the card

Have a wonderful weekend!
