Communion card - it's THAT time of the year!

It's going to be a quick post today, I have about gazillion things I need to get done! Life - so gets in the way of blogging, doesn't it!!??

The card I'm showing today was actually commissioned (I know, gasp!) for a Communion day of the little boy who's a big Celtic fan. I was also told that there shouldn't really be anything religious on the card.

So here it is:

I got a little Soccer Boy from Mo's Digital Pencil store and coloured his uniform to match Celtic team ... not sure how good of a job I did.

Kept the card very simple as 8-year old boys don't really appreciate frills too much - to my knowledge anyway. Just used MME Quite Contrary papers (again, I know, but they ARE perfect in every way, lol) and some card candy and MS border punch to add some interest.

I love Mo's image though, he really looks like he's having fun! :)

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp  - One For The Boys
Creative Ispirations - Card for a Child
Digital Tuesday - Cute People
Mo's Challenge - LOVE
Rosie D's - Easel Card
Sew Many Challenges - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
