Ribbon for Men

Daring Cardmakers Friday Report :-)
Debbie dared us to make a card for a man using at least a little piece of ribbon. Apparently her first though was to make us use flowers on a man's card, but she thought we might mutiny at that so went for the ribbon instead. Little did she know what some of the team would come up with. You need to check out the Dare Blog to see.

Mine is really tame compared to some, I apologise in advance! All I could think was, oooh it's my brother's birthday in December how can I use this dare to get his card made ahead of time?
So obviously it has to have a sports theme, and obviously that theme has to be football.

So here you go a football themed card with Leeds Utd colours for the ribbon element, and for the highlight borders. .
It's all self evident, a bit of chalking, some of the usual chalk inks (the cats eyes ones to be exact). I stamped the greeting and, with hindsight I should have embossed it as the letters are a bit flat looking. I think I'll have another go at that bit before December as I'm really not happy with it. I used QK studio alphabet to add the name, and the footballs are from QK too.
