A Card for Retro Sketches

I love this weeks sketch over at Retro Sketches.  So much so that I have already made two cards and plan to make another!  Here is my first take:

We (England) are playing football in the Euro Championships tonight and I've watched football everyday since the tournament started - Love it!  So football is on my mind at the moment...

I've used a load of green offcuts and leftovers to represent the pitch, gold to represent the champions (alas that is Spain at the moment and not England!) and stars (as the World Cup champions are entitled to put a gold star on their kit.)

I used a bubble sticker of a football (found in the kiddies section of a supermarket I think!), a football brad and some epoxy stickers in various shades of grey.

To finish off the card I hand drew a border around the edge before I started sticking and stapling all the bits down.

I think this would be a perfect birthday card for any footy mad boys... and if I had made it a few days earlier would have been perfect for Fathers Day too!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I really like this, a lot going on but placed perfectly. Great job with the sketch.

  2. Lovely card. Thank you for playing along at RetroSketches ; )

  3. Hello England - Germany calling! Your card caught my eye cuz of the 1) soccer balls 2) monochromatic nature and 3) great balance even with all the elements on it. See you in the finals (he he he)

  4. WOW! I love that you were so inspired this sketch. :)
    Love all of the green tones.
    Thanks for playing along with us at RetroSketches!

  5. This is brilliant! Love the shades of green and the staples too. Fab guys card :0)
