A Gem of a Challenge - a boy thing!

Hello, I'm back with my 2nd post for today - my DT card for A Gem of a Challenge, where our theme is 'a boy thing'...



I've used the very cute Football Teddy and coloured him with promarkers and flexmarkers - his shirt is actually plain, the wonky stripes are all my doing... well, it's for a Sheffield United fan!  The papers are some old Doodlebug ones, the 'birthday boy' sentiment stamp is from the Skateboard Andy set, and I added some ribbon and card candy.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Well apart from a bit of crafting, I've done very little today - it was just what I needed!  Hope you're all having a good weekend so far :o)
