Happy 50th!

A friend of ours will be celebrating his 50th birthday tomorrow.  He is a former college soccer player and former youth soccer coach.  Now days, he can be found cheering on his own kids on the sidelines in high school and college.   Since his passion for soccer still thrives, I knew my card had to be very soccerified!

I really love how the background came out.  I used Papertrey Ink's hexagon coverplate to make the background and then went one step further and used an embossing folder for the white pieces.   That added some great dimension and had me doing cartwheels!   

And, here is a look at the inside.  I kept it pretty simple...

Thanks for stopping by!   Have a great weekend!

Supplies used: FRONT:  PTI Hexagon coverplate for the background, Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder, PTI Limitless Layers for the badge, PTI Suffix Style for the "th", Quickutz Biography for the 50, and also used Wink of Stella on the 50.  INSIDE:  MFT balloon stamp and matching die with clear embossing powder and the happy happy birthday sentiment is from Birthday Bash Sentiments also from PTI and is embossed in Zing blue.
