Football Card!

Hello Diva's! How have you All been doing? I have been busy busy with School just starting Tuesday and getting back into a routine. Today is Crew Member 1's Birthday he is 13 today :( I was so sad when I went in his room this morning to sing Happy Birthday 2 him ( on their birthdays I wake them up and serenade them w/ the Happy Birthday song they just smile and laugh!). Anyhow I didn't have time to get his card made before this morning but I just finished it so he will get it as soon as he gets home! I had a hard time on figuring out what to do because I wanted to tie in his 3 most favorite things (besides me lol) Football ( he has been playing since he was 6yrs old and he is very good @ it), Video games ( what 13yr old doesn't), and Snickers lol! But they all just didn't seem to come together like I wanted! So I seen this sketch design over on Skipping Stones Designs that I really liked so I went with it ( I am beginnig to really LOVE these Sketch Design Challenges)!!

I wanted it to really look like a football field so the numbers on the side represent his birthday 09-08-11 like yard lines.

Awesome, awesome card. I find teenage boys absolutely the hardest to design for. You got a touchdown on this card. Your son is going to love it, especially the gift card inside. I think it's so sweet that you wake up your kids with the Happy Birthday song. Wish I'd thought of that when my five kids were little. All grown and gone now. Thanks for sharing with us at Cricut Cardz.
