Footie birthday card

Hi everyone, I'm back to share a card I've made for a friend. My brief was that he loves football and supports Liverpool (so best make it red). Here's what I came up with...
 The image is by Stitchy Bear, coloured with Promarkers. The backing paper which the image is mounted on, with 3D glue, is from the Forever Friends 'Just for him' paper pack. I've embossed the red checked paper with a couple of different sized football stamps and the word Goal using Daisy and Dandelion stamps and black detail embossing powder. The name has been cut using the cricut and is mounted on corrugated card, to which I've added twine and candi. Edges have been distressed with my Tim Holtz tool and I've added a strip of ribbon at the bottom.

 I would like to enter this for the following:-

Delightful Challenges - For the boys 
Passion for promarkers - Lots of layers

Thanks for looking, I hope I'll see you again soon.

Happy crafting
Helen xx
