Just no getting away from it.........

..........the world cup that is!... :D lol  I had to laugh yesterday when shopping round asda with my dad, they had some poor assistant walking up and down the checkouts with a placard saying 'over ere' guiding people to the less busy tills!!  They looked to be really getting into the spirit....... (not). ha ha.

I have made this card today for the SCS Sugar Nellie Forum gatefold card challenge.  This is the first chance I have had to make a card for over a week or so, but I love the SCS challenge, and I cant remember the last time I made a gatefold card.  I won this stamp from Sugar Nellie/Funkykits last week for a spot prize banner, and was really chuffed! :)

I chose neutral colours for the football theme (best to play safe) unless I have randomly picked colours for an obscure sunday league team :) though I confess I am a Nottingham Forest fan myself (ahem - we were robbed)! lol

I am also entering this card in;

sketch saturday - This is a great sketch, and quite suited the gatefold.

Simon says - recipe - 1 image,  2 papers (I embossed white paper to contrast patterned) and 3 types of embellishments. (Tag, footballs and buttons)

What a LOVELY card. I love your cleverness with the corners (with - love). I also like the little guy 'sitting' on the circle (which I also love - (the circle, that is). This is such a lovely mix of layers. TFS

Absolutely great - have sat with this enlarged just looking at your colouring & the super embellishments. Love the natural texture with those footballs & buttons. The way you get such a sense of dimension in your colouring is an education. I've been missing my "Great Leveller" fixes so shall be glad when next Wednesday is over. Take care of yourself & glad you managed to get this done.
Much love
