I love this action figure stamp, just in mid save. This card is going to be for my Great Nephew who will be seven soon and plays for his local under 9's football team.
I made a sort of polaroid aperture with my MFT dies and put the image behind it, I thought it looked like a snap shot from a match, what d'ya think?

I love the clever 'snapshot' frame for the image; it looks brilliant! Using the strips of DP to hint at grass and sky behind the image is really clever too :-)

I hope this lovely sunny weather stays with us for the weekend and hope you have a good one!

Big hugs, Kat xx
