DT Whiff of Joy - Football Ben

Hi everyone! What a GLORIOUS few days we've had. Sun is shining and it's warm enough for the kidlets to be outside without coats! Of course along with the good, out come the bugs.. hubster 'dealt' with the most HUMUNGOUS wasp yesterday.. *shudder*

Anyhoooo.. my little man had a very busy weekend, with parties to attend. One of the parties was for a boy who is football crazy so I used Whiff of Joy's "Football Ben" digi on his card. 

And what better papers to use for a boys card than Basic Grey Archaic!! I literally only have scraps of this 6x6 pad left, but these papers are so easy to work with that scraps are no problem. 

I machine stitched the papers and added some twine. Very clean and simple. as my boy cards tend to be,  lol. 

Copics used - E00, 01, 11, 42, 43, 44. G20, 21, 24. B41, 45. YR14, 15, 18. C8, 5, 3.
