Less Is More - Second Entry

While I was in my craft room this morning creating my first card for this weeks challenge I decided to have a bit of a tidy!! I've had quite a few commissioned cards to finish before the girls break up from school & when I'm busy my craft room just get more & more untidy!! When I couldn't even see the desk this morning I decided enough was enough lol!!

I found these 3 footballs from the Goal stamp set from Stampin' Up! already stamped out & ready to use so set about creating another card for this weeks circles challenge.

I've used the Goal stamp to create a grass effect & have stamped it in Pear Pizzazz & Old Olive. The sentiment is from the Party This Way set punched out with the Word Window punch (I did stamp it directly onto the card using my Stamp-a-ma-jig first!! bad idea to do that after I'd stuck the footballs down as I couldn't get the SAMJ flush & the sentiment smudged duh!!)

Thanks for looking & for any comments you leave.

I have this set but I would never have thought of using the wording to make the grass, will have to store that idea away for the next football card I make!
