CASE a card at Paper Crafting Journey!!

A new challenge has started at Paper Crafting Journey and this week we have a bit of a challenge for you! (I know it was a challenge for me) We would like you to CASE a card!
You need to make a duplicate card of a fellow Crafter.  Seen a card you like lately?  I know you have.  Make the exact same card!  Be sure to give credit to the Crafter who's card you are casing.
We are sponsored by The Paper Shelter this week:

Now my card is definitely not exact because I didn't have any of the supplies but I replicated the idea and as much of the card as I could as far as the design goes and the layout of the card!
So here is the link to the card I CASEd - Kompis-Kort byMari
And here is my attempt at CASEing it
I didn't have any soccer paper so I decided to use an embossing folder with circles and inked over it with white ink! I had this fabulous soccer ball ribbon so I based my colours on that. I coloured the image in with tria markers. I then inked around the image with black soot distress ink. To finish off the card  I added the soccer ball brads a the number 8 which I also inked with white!!
I hope that you can join us this week at Paper Crafting Journey!
I would like to enter thi card into the following challenges:
* Divas by design - use a digi
* Crafty Sentiments - For a guy
* 365 days - men in blue
* Natalie and Amy's challenge - For the Boys

  3. Awesome creation Alethea! I love this image and how you did the embossing. Also love that ribbon - both my boys play soccer, so I have a soft spot for anything soccer related. Thanks so much for playing at Crafty Sentiments this week. Hugs:)

  4. Alethea, This is so clever how you figured out a way to do a soccer themed card without any sports or soccer DP!! Love it!! :) :) Thank you for joining us @ Crafty Sentiments “For the Guys” challenge!! I have some newly released products as candy on my blog if you are interested. :) :)
