One for the Guys!

 A closer look...
 one more view!
As many of you know I struggle with 'guy' cards. I don't know why but they are so hard for me to do. This is one guy card that went together so fast for me. I think part of it is I love this fabulous image from The Paper Shelter. Isn't he just the cutest guy? Both of my grandsons are playing soccer and while we haven't got a chance to see them play yet, I know they are having so much fun with it. My blessings to the coaches and all the people involved in teaching them. Our challenge at THE PAPER SHELTER this week is One For The Guys. I hope you will grab one of our fabulous images (OK you don't have to use a Paper Shelter image, but why wouldn't you want to?) and play with us! I am going to make another card similar to this one so both of my grandsons will enjoy getting some mail from 'grammy'.  I colored my image with Copics, and framed it with a Spellbinders die. I added some red liquid pearls to each scallop. The stars are from SU punches that I have had for several years. The soccer ball is just a cheap foam  piece, but it does add so much to the card. The paper is from SU and the 'net' is self adhesive dry wall tape....stolen  borrowed from my husband. LOL! 
Please take a moment and check out my team mates lovely cards. I am in awe they are fantastic! Now get busy and make a card!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: Chris Tomlin (May God send His Blessings to the USA)
Time for me to step out of the water
Time for me to just loose my hold
And it's time for me to leave here all that I've hoped for
Could You take me where I need to go
I am waiting for Your love
I am reaching for Your touch
Lost without You, 
God, reach down
I need You now, I need You now
