Team Colours

I often get asked to make football related cards  - usually Sunderland or Newcastle because of where I live. Today's card is a little further afield - a 50th birthday card for a life long Aston Villa fan...

I kept it very simple as usual. I printed out three copies of the club crest then decoupaged the image - that lion thingy was a nightmare to cut! This idea is easily adaptable for any football club - just echo the team colours in the stripes down the side.

I've entered this card into the current challenges at:

The Crafting Cafe - one for the boys
Paper Crafting Challenge - masculine
Time Out Challenge - masculine
Eclectic Ellapu - one for the boys

Thanks for looking
