Mini card.....Little but sooo cute!!

I have had a busy day today doing day 2 of my SENCo course and needed to unwind a bit after I had put Mo to bed so I decided to have a play and make a cute little mini card.The card is only 9x7cm and really does look cute!!! I cut the scalloped card from my new arrival cart,inked the edges and added a few doodle dots in blue. Then I printed out a few josh's (from grab-a-doodle-do). I cut three little rectangles and highlighted the edges of the bottom one with a silver gel pen, then inked it blue over that, I used a bit pf patterned paper for the 2nd layer and inked it softly and then the 3rd layer is the white cardstock I had printed Josh out on,trimmed into a rectangle with the edges inked in blue again and a few doodle dots. I have put 3d glaze on the little football and it looks really cool as it has a kind of domed shape but I think it is tricky to see in the picture! I haven't made a sentiment yet but I have just downloaded a really cool football font called 'Bend it' from so I think I will be using that for it. I have also made a really nice card for my lovely friend Michelle who I do 'happy mail' with but I don't want to post that until I know she has recieved it!! it is the first card I have made using my new storybook cart and I am really pleased with it!! I will post it soon!!
