Time For Twine!

Morning all, I hope you are enjoying a relaxing Sunday morning :)
I am here with details of a new challenge at
#185 - TWINE
Any kinda twine you like, garden twine, divine twine....
Here's my card:
I made an easel card for my nephew's birthday using this adorable image called BRADLEY WITH FOOTBALL. It is one of several Bradley images available at THE CRAFTY PAD DESIGNS online store.
I coloured Bradley up with Promarkers and teamed him up with some digi papers from my stash.
I have used Orange Divine Twine behind the image to represent the goal-net.
My nephew's name is Bradley, and he is a footie fanatic, so the image seemed perfect for him! I added a sentiment panel (raised up on foam pads to act as the stopper,) and some football buttons to decorate.
Finally I inked the edges to finish.
Here is a side-view.
The rest of Team B (with the exception of our dear Leesa, who is amidst moving-house-mayhem!) have some fabby inspiration to get you in the mood for creating your own masterpieces, so pop over to the blog and see.

Nearly forgot to mention our SPONSOR this week!! Thanks heaps to Joanna Sheen for her generous £10 to spend in her online craft shop.

We hope to see lots of entries again this week, and remember, if you use a CRAFTY PAD IMAGE you will get another one of your choice for FREE!!
Thanks for your visit, see you again soon I hope.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
