WSC54-Happy Soccer

Thanks for joining me again this week. I have so much fun with these sketches. We are showing off our second sketch of the year. You should play along for a chance to win a weekly prize. It's easy and FUN!

This week I am showing off the birthday card I made for DS.  Yep, my oldest joined the double digit club. I seriously can't believe how fast the last 10 years flew by.  If you read my post on FB yesterday, you'll know that I mentioned how teary eyed I got thinking about the next 8 YEARS and how fast THOSE will fly by.

My kids know I make a LOT of cards. It's just who I am, so they never really say much about them. BUT J got a big smile on his face when he opened this one and said, "this is really cool, mom!"  I gave a BIG smile, right back.
He's a very talented soccer player, so I knew right away I wanted to use the newer ALL- STAR  SET for his card.  The little flag is the awesome new WAVY PENNANTS flag on the post from MINI PENNANTS.  You NEED both sets of die-namics, trust me!

You'll also see I used STACKING STARS,  and some MFT TWINE. I used BANNER DAY ALPHABET for the number 10 and the stamped Happy Birthday border is from BY THE NUMBERS STAMP SET. 
Here is the sketch for you. Give it a try.

Kim's blog has all the WSC challenge info. Please hop on over there and then join us in the SCS forum to play along this week!
