Are You Ready For Some Football??

Yes, the season is upon us and all the football fans will be watching their favorite teams play whether it be in the national leagues, high school or college games. In that honor I created a football card and  as most of my family are Vikings fans my card is promoting them. I had to fussy cut my own horn for the helmet so please excuse the crude design.



The pattern paper I had in my stash is from years ago and it was bought at a clearance sale when a store went out of business so I have no idea who made it but it was perfect for a football card. I used the Cheery Lynn Designs Football Helmet die to make the focal image. As you can see it is a nice looking helmet and one could make it for any team but I chose to use mine as a Vikings helmet. I wish my purple had been a bit darker though but this was the best I could do with what I had on hand.

I am entering this in the Scrapy Land Challenge-Anything Goes #120 and Dies R Us Challenge #127-Sports.

Thanks for visiting. And I hope your week is going well.

God bless,
Verna

What a great way to personalise the die cut helmet with the horn and the paper on the background looks wonderful. Such a striking masculine card Verna x.

You did a fantastic job on making that helmet a Viking team. I am, of course, a Packer fan. Go Pack! Nice idea for a card.

Yes, football season is here and your card says it all! Great way to showcase your Vikings team. Being an Ohio State Alumnus, I am looking foward to this seasons OSU games. Also, being from Ohio, I am a Browns fan and hope they have a better season than in the past.
