Jake's birthday card

Good morning!! I am up and about early this morning as I have such a busy day!! Ross has got his first cricket match of the season this morning so I will be going to watch him shortly, he is very excited but the weather has turned here so it may be called off!!
Here is the card I made in a hurry yesterday afternoon! Evan told me Jake likes football so I went with that and the good old faithful Schoolbook Serif alphabet!!!
I went with Yo Yo Yellow and Brilliant Blue as these are Leeds United colours

I made an interesting discovery making this card, the 1 1/4 circle punch fits perfectly round the footballs, so I punched a few out and layered them up!

I also cut out the boots and strung them together and tied them dangling from the number 7 just for an added feature.

Quite pleased with my efforts, took between 15-20 minutes.
So after cricket I have to go to a rehearsal for 6 hours and then straight onto a private ballroom lesson, my goodness I will sleep tonight!!
