Happy Birthday Joe

Morning all.
It's time for a brand new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz, you know, where we try to convince you that making cards for the men in your life isn't as difficult as you may think!
This time our theme is:-


Well what can you think of? I thought of the numbers 4, 5, 40, 44, 50, 55, or perhaps you might go down the route of farm, fish, frog, friends, fur or even fashion. Well for mine I went with football with this card made for my football mad Son in law's birthday tomorrow!

Yes I know it's tomorrow but I don't think Joe will be checking my blog out!

I saw this cute card on my Pinterest feed that Gmail flags up occasionally. I decided to use the same LOTV image but colour him in the colours of Liverpool FC. The sentiment was cut from a panel of white card, eventually, using Altenew's Fine Alphabet die set and some Sizzix sticky grid sheets. This was the 4th attempt as first I got the sentiment the wrong way, then I got a couple of the letters the wrong way, then I missed out the h in birthday! Anyway I persevered and hopefully it was worth it. 
The grass was cut from green oddments using a Heffy Doodle die I got last year from Port Sunny.
The footballer was coloured with Copics and fussy cut as was the ball.

For more masculine inspiration check out the team here.
If you fancy being on the DT there's a spot going, if you're interested, just check out the blog for details.
