30th Birthday Card

Today I am sharing a card I made for my youngest nephew who 
celebrated his 30th birthday yesterday.
He plays five-aside football and supports Tottenham Hotspur, so I wanted to make
something with a football theme.

I lightly inked the embossed card with Faded Denim distress ink, made the rosette
and added the number and the home made card candi.

The items I have used are:-
Crafter's Companion (Angelica and Adam) Embossing Folder - Football Crazy
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Circles and Scalloped Circles
Die-Namics - Mini Pennant Die 
First Edition dies - Number and Date

Challenges entered:-
AAA Cards - Masculine
Morgan's ArtWorld - Embossing/Wet or Dry
Penny's Paper- Crafty Challenge - Anything Goes
Deep Ocean Challenge - Use die cuts or punches
Scrapy Land - Anything Goes
My Time to Craft - Distress It

Thanks for looking in.
