Connie-Soccer Time!

My card today comes from a plate (#122) by 
Karen Middleton that is all about sports.
I chose this image with a soccer theme as my 
grandson's birthday is coming soon and he
is nuts!!

I colored the image on white paper with Copic markers and then
cut a mask and sponged some blue dye ink by Ranger
"Sea Shells-Cloudy Blue" around my mask.
Added a chipboard soccer ball sticker by Reminisce
"Real Sports" and some clear glitter pen accents along with a few 
doodles by my white gel pen.

You can find this cool sheet of images over at
Sweet Pea Stamps by clicking on the name
of Karen Middleton there.

Thanks for stopping by,
