'Plenty of Balls!

This is my first post for today, please pop back later to see my first creation for 'Inky Impressions!'

It's time for a new challenge over at The Stamping Chef, as always the theme is anything goes!
Tamara the boss has been cooking up a storm drawing some fab new images, so make sure you pop over & see what she's been up to!

I decided to use this fab image & make Nige's birthday card.....didn't quite know what colours to do her strip in, but decided on pink lol!! We live right near Britannia which is Stoke City's ground & they play in red & white stripes & he supports Wolves who play in gold & black! But I thought pink was good heehee!!

I used my trellis border die cut, because I thought it looked like the netting they use in the goal!
