A card for Joel

A friend asked me to make a card for a little chap who will be celebrating his 5th Birthday and loves football (or soccer as our friends across the pond like to call it). I sat pondering for a while and then came up with the notion of making a spinner card. I've had this football die for ages and don't think that I have ever got round to using it before. I found that a Sizzix Framelit die was just the same size, so I cut one of those to use as a backing to stick all the fiddly bits onto. I cut one each in black and white and made 2 balls. I will use the other later sometime. The little footballer chappie is from a very old set of kid's stamps from Bang on the door. They are kind of foam backed, but work really well! By making the grass quite deep, it served to make a space big enough to accommodate the ball and by putting the cut out stamp to the back made it look like he was in the distance running up to the ball... that's what I think any way! I cut the name and the number with my Silhouette Portrait!

With the sphere of the ball and the hexagons on it , I thought it quite suitable for the challenge at Addicted to CAS.
