Rugby mad boy!

Post 26
Happy New Year to all in blogland.
After a pathetic end to the year, as far as blogging was concerned, I have started afresh. The boys are at school, husband at work and the computer is mine .....for a while at least!

This card was made for my rugby mad nephew. I have used the Karen Burniston 'Pop n Cuts', base die on the inside. 
The outer of the card is Centura pearl decorated with card and paper from my stash.
The rugby ball is a stamp from Clarity Stamps called 'Remountable Welsh clear stamp set' I doodled some movement lines after stamping and coloured half the ball with my pro markers. The greeting is from a stamp set by Polkadoodles (I can't find it on their website though!) And cut out using spellbinder dies.

On the inside the main image, from Lili of the Valley, a stamp called 'Rugby Mad', has been coloured with promarkers and cut out , leaving a small border. 

The image is stuck onto the pop up part of the insert.

I made the goal post  using the sizzix 'Flagpole w/lantern & sign' sizzlit and attached them using the Floating floor technique, as seen on the Karen Burniston blog. (a template for the floating floor can be downloaded here too.)
 The banner was cut from the same sizzlit die but I stamped the letters using the Clarity stamp Letterbox set. Love it!

Hope you like my first blog of the year. I loved making this card.....very satisfying!
Thought I'd enter this in to the Lili of th Valley monthly Challenge

Happy Crafting.
