Cards for Men - Challenge 3 - "Seeing Red"

Good Morning Everyone, I just carnt believe that already another fortnight has flown by and weve now reached out third Challenge over on the Cards for Men and this time we are being sponsered by Letreset,

and this what they say about themselves :-

And they have offered a fabulous prize:-

And here is my card for this "Seeing Red" Challenge.

For my card Ive used this gorgeous "Football Bo" image for my card and coloured him with my promarkers and tria pens, I then cut him out with my Nestabilitie Labels Die No.17 and drawn around the die to create the mount. The sentiment is one I created on my computer and printed it out and mounted it on a piece of red card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for my first mount Ive used red card and two free downloads I found on the internet, the first one is a red background with footballs on and the second is a strip of white with more footballs on this was punched on the two sides with a Martha Steward punch.
I then wrapped around the middle a white football ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount, and positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. For my final flourish I have stuck two football buttons and a boot down the right hand side at the top.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope you will go and visit what the rest of the very talented design team have created for your inspiration over on the Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and I hope you will also take part in this "Seeing Red" Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
