For The Love of The Game - Challenge 16 for Delightful Sketches

There's a fabulous new challenge at Delightful Sketches at this time we want to see your projects all above Love! I took mine in a little different direction and I'm sure you all know a little boy (or a big boy ;)) who has a "love" for his favorite sport.

I used a few challenges to help me with this one.

Fun With Shapes had the perfect sketch as I knew the circles could be Soccer balls
Paper Make Up had a photo inspiration from which I pulled the colors blue, black and white
Pile It On had a theme of "Enough of the Winter Colors"
365 Cards Day339 had a "Love" theme where they wanted Love in the title of your card
Crafty Anns wanted to see Metallics
My Grafico wanted Metals
Practical Scrappers wanted Die Cuts
Stamping Vacation had their Pick 3 challenge. I chose 1.Image that reminds you of childhood, 2.2 different colored brads, 3. Ribbon to match brad color
ABC were at N is for New and Jamie is a from Wendy's latest release so he's super new

I used the fabulous Soccer Jamie and colored him with Copic's to match the inspiration photo. I really love his long hair! I cut him with a label Nestie.
The dp is from an old DCVW stack.
The border punch is a new design from EK Success and the soccer balls are puffy stickers from Michaels. The patterned brads are Paper Studio.

I added another soccer ball to the mat inside the card.

Here's Jamie, I wonder if he'll score a goal today? LOL

So no matter what your take on Love is be sure to make a card and enter our challenge.

We have a great sponsor Stamp and Create who are offering a $15 gift certificate for the winner.
Come along and join the fun!
