Pink Gem Challenge - Special Birthdays 1, 13, 18, 21 etc,

My card for this special birthday challenge is a 13 birthday card for a young lad just starting his teens, and Ive used this lovely image of Miki in his football gear and coloured him with my copic pens then I cut him out with my oval nestabilitie die, I also created a mount with some blue pearlescent card and my scalloped die. The football badge is another of Janets stamps and the sentiment is a Hero Arts one with gold numbers stuck in the middle.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of blue card and one of three papers that Ive printed from the "Kick it" Nitwit download set, the first layer is a green paper with a football field drawn on it in white, the second paper is greetings paper with all sorts of messages for a footballer, and the third is all over football design, Ive used a border punch on both of these and stuck them across the middle of the first layer afterwards I stuck a football ribbon around to the back of the first layer.
Ive then stuck my image to the left hand side and my sentment and badge to the right. To finish of Ive stuck two footballs and boots along the bottom of my card.
And before I go I want to wish you all a wonderful weekend I hope you all enjoy yourselves, but I do hope the weather improves and we get some of that lovely sunshine we had at the begining of the week, take care

Your children are simply grandiose motives Shirley, also your card. Where to get them? My grandson also enjoys playing football and he had his birthday today. Have unfortunately found nothing with football. Then I took the card, which I have now terminated.
As an alternative, also very good. Wish a nice weekend
With Hugs and Love
