Whiff of Joy

Good morning everyone!!!  Today is my oldest daughter's birthday and she is the big 2-1 today!! Wow!!! I can't believe it! She is up at school, so I won't get to see her, but I hope to get up there soon or her down here. Happy Birthday Taylor!!

So, today I am posting my first post for Whiff of Joy for March. I have created two cards using this image:













The image I used is Football Ben which you can find in the Whiff of Joy shop. I colored this image with my Prismacolor Pencils. And I went with an Aussie color scheme .. I was thinking about my husband playing soccer hehehe And he was all cute blonde when he was younger. I didn't do any layering with him, but I had two images so I decided to make two cards. The only difference on these two are the sentiments. They are both Thank You cards, but the second one is Thank You Coach. All of the papers are from my scrap box... took me forever to find that net paper.. I knew I had some in there though! I remembered using it a long time ago LOL. I distressed the smaller square under the image. The soccer ball is a My Favorite Thing die cut and I colored some of it with my black pencil. I added the black buttons and the black ric rac. I thought the yellow and green gems would look nice as well, so I threw those on as an after though. I decorated the inside with the same papers and used up that net paper. I had some fun coloring these images... I'm trying to work out the layering a bit more.
