A Sporting Chance!

I've rather neglected my blog this week for some reason - so now I'm going to need to do a bit of a catch up before I forget what I've been making!
I absolutely didn't intend to share a football themed card for this week's 'A Sporting Chance' challenge over at the Daring Cardmakers, but my plans went awry so even though we've probably all had enough of it (I'd be quite happy if I never heard the word ever again) football it is.  
I may still try to do something else because I bought some lovely digital papers and clipart sets on Etsy so it would be good to give them a try.
Anyway, this one is an 'impossible card' so called because the way the sections overlap even though its only one piece of card, seems impossible - it's all in the twist!

The 'impossible' section of my card is the white part - see how the stand up tabs seem to overlap the black base, how can that be when its only one piece of card?  
I decided to add the black base to add some rigidity, as having three stand up tabs instead of the more usual two, it seemed a bit floppy!
Card: Black, White,  Green, Gold, Silver, Red
Dies are very old Quickutz ones!
"Happy Birthday" from Spellbinders
The banner is hand cut
The other good thing about these cards is that the pop-up sections fold flat to slide into an envelope

That's it for this time
 Thank you for popping by, I hope you'll take a look at the other cards from our designers HERE

Fun use of the impossible concept Kathy, I’m sure this will be a winner with the recipient!
