A card for Ruby

Good evening! I'm running late with my posts  this week, got back from holiday yesterday and was too tired to even look at the computer let alone make a post! There was a time when the 250 mile journey from Devon didn't phase me in the least but those days have gone...sadly! Feeling much better today after a good night's sleep in my own lovely bed!! Washing and ironing all done and we have food in the fridge again, so all good here!
Anyway, this is my card for this week's challenge at Sweet Stampin', the theme is 'for a child'.
This is for my granddaughter who will reach the wonderful age of 10 next month. Last year her card was pink with a fairy and a large kids change in a year! now her passion is football, her prized possessions her football strip, boots and shin pads!!! Still it's good healthy exercise!
I made a circular easel card. The large football is made from die cut hexagons, the image is a digi by Krista Leigh Smith (formerly Saturated Canary), coloured with copics and fussy cut.  The  sentiment and football are stamped. 
Please hop over to Sweet Stampin' to see what my lovely teamies have been  up to this week.
Thanks for visiting, have a good week.

Happy Birthday to your granddaughter for next month, July. As her passion is football, this is the perfect card for her. Lovely shape, cute image and great sentiment. Kisses, my friend.

A really super card, using a circle card is really perfect, great image and love the large football, can't believe you made it out of hexagons, brilliant. Like the addition of the grass die too. I am sure she will love it.
Must admit that the thing that hit me first of all was the bottom half of the card, I thought OMG she has spelt RUGBY wrong, then I looked at the top half, dope (me not you)
Guessed you were on holiday, I am come Friday, Spain one week and like you I am getting past long journeys, think the Caribbean has seen the last of us, not the journey there but the one back that has hit me hard.
Nice to have you back.

Brilliant card, Chris. I love the easel design and using the football as the '0' is a really clever idea. xx
