A football send off

A bright card but for a very sad occasion today unfortunately.

If you are local you will have read about a teenager who tragically was killed in a car accident recently. His Dad works in my department at work so we are having a collection for the family's chosen charity and all signing a piece of paper which was to be added to a card.  Of course, I volunteered to make one.

I did a bit of research as I knew he was very much in to football which was the chosen theme as people were encouraged to wear football shirts for the funeral.

No surprises that it got a bit complicated as 3 football teams were suggested.

Anyway, this is the finished card.  The background has the football club logos in faint print, some paper strips from an Anna Marie pack in matching colours also added.

The footballers are from a Papermania stamp set, the middle one is cut out separately and added with 3D pads.  All of them are coloured with Copics.

Sentiment from Stampin' Up and punched out with SU punches.

All very sad but I am pleased with the finished result.
