Polka dots and circles

This card is for my goooorgeous nephew, Jack, who is 9 on Monday. This image just sums him up really :-)
When I saw that the challenge on Sarah Hurley's blog was polka dots and circles, I thought that this sketch from Lili of the valley was perfect. The image is also lili of the valley and I've coloured him with my promarkers. The papers are Rich Green from Papermania that I've had for years. I'm not sure where I got the tag from... I cut the letters and number using the Bang! Zoom! alphabet from Sizzix. The buttons are from my stash.
This is also my second entry into A Spoonful of Sugar's "Anything goes" challenge.
Gotta go... off on the school run! Have a fab day!
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx

I love that little boy kicking a football! I also really like how you've cut round the ball, it looks as if he's just walloped it off the park! Great card, I hope the recipient likes it!

luv, Mags x
