World Cup countdown

Deanne has selected a timely inspiration photo for us this time at {PIN}spirational Challenges. With Father's Day and the World Cup both on tap this month, we can all get sporty.
This challenge is sponsored by Imagine That! digital stamps, with a random draw for a gift certificate to their store, so I hope you get in the spirit and link up.

This card features the "impossible card" layout that has been making its way around the web. Once  I learned how to do it, I was amazed at how un-impossible it is. It's SO easy!.  (SCS has a good tutorial and I'm sure others abound).

The Soccer Nut image and sentiment are from Bugaboo and were colored in pencils. Everything but that sporty background paper is a snippet (and this sort of card looks to be a really good way to use up snippets, since the largest piece you need is only a quarter sheet).

I'm entering my card in these challenges:
CRAFT #470 -- outdoor fun
Crafting by Designs -- For the Boys
Scribbles Designs #65 -- masculine
Pixie's Snippet Playground #327 -- use snippets
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday -- anything goes
Catch the Bug -- anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #336 -- anything goes
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge --  use patterned paper
