Red or Blue?!

I decided to make a couple of football cards last week, something I always like to keep a stock of, as we have quite a few followers of the sport in the family and here in Liverpool with two football teams to choose from and supporters of both teams in the family, I always have to make both Liverpool and Everton versions.
I made a couple of each with the team badge and song and a couple of each with the football and boots, so that's most of my male birthday cards made for the year LOL!

The footballer digi stamp is from The Paper Shelter and I made the papers, football and boots myself using CU templates, actions and overlays I had in my stash.

Papers, ball, boots, sentiments - made by me using CU stash
