Soccer Star

I made this card for My Daughters friend who just turned 18, and I must say that it was quite a challenge. I had to make a card that was not a girly card and I had to use soccer balls on it, as Kiki is soccer crazy. I think I did rather well.
Firstly I sent a SOS to a friend as I did not have any soccer stamps, she sent me some links for clip art. Thanks Frances
I chose this little soccer ball and printed it so I had 9 images, I found the what a star ribbon in my supplies and paired it with black grosgrain ribbon. The stars were made with my nestibilities and I used rub ons for the number 18. The circle behind the stars was cut with my circle nestibilities and put through the Argyle Cuttlebug embossing folder. I then used my sponging block to apply black ink to the raised areas. To finish the card I added brads and paper piercing.
Supplies: White and Black card, black ink, cuttlebug eb folder,nestabilities, ribbons, brads, paper piercing tool and mat, clip art, rub ons, sponging block.
