Hello, Good to see the sun is making an appearance here now - it was avery dingy, damp start to the day though!

My card for The Sketch File this week is a football themed card, and I've been delving in to the big box of really old dies again to make it.

The inked 'square' background is made using a couple of different green inks, and a torn paper mask
Die cut elements:
 Trophy - Sizzix
Football Strip and Football - Quickutz
White rectangular panel is embossed with footballs
(footballs embossing folder - not sure, might be Crafts Too)
The scarf is handcut
Sentiment is a homemade decal sticker
(Dry Decal Printer Paper - Crafty Computer Paper)
Here's the sketch

 I used the rotated version

I think this idea would work for various sports and hobby themed cards - although the sketch uses the same 3 items, we don't have to ;), it's all about creativity.

Anyway, I hope you like it, and also hope you are inspired enough to come and join in with us this time on The Sketch File

Thanks for looking, please leave a comment!
