Soccer Boy (or man)

I have been really busy making cards as I had orders totalling 17 cards when I went to work on Tuesday. I have come to a conclusion that I really need to focus on making some male stock cards so I can practice as I find them quite a challenge. Girls cards are easy (ish) Pretty pic, bling, flowers, ribbon and the jobs a good 'un. Men's on the other hand see me getting frustrated, leaving the room and making myself dizzy with ideas that don't/ won't work....
Saying that, I have completed a male card today. The image is Soccer from Kenny K.
I have coloured him with  Promarkers, The papers are a mix of bits from stash and some MME Lost and found two.I have used my sizzix stars and Computer generated the name and then wrapped some twine around and added some square black gems.
I hope he likes it. ( He supports Liverpool, hence the red kit)
Bye for now, Lou x
