Future Star

Not only is it Thanksgiving and Black Friday week but it's also Iron Bowl week here in Alabama. That means football of course - the annual Alabama vs Auburn game, our in state rivalry game. Think Michigan vs Michigan State, USC vs UCLA, Ole Miss vs Miss St. But of course those games are rather wimpy compared to ours! And although all the controversy and allegations about Auburn have threatened to ruin it, all we can hope for is that the truth, whatever it is, will come out in the end. At any rate, the little guy on this card is ready for some football too. And although I am a diehard Alabama fan, these colors are a nod to Auburn. I stamped the Lili of the Valley image onto Bazzill Simply Smooth cardstock, cut out with a rectangular Nestie and then colored with Copic Markers. The extra football is from a My Favorite Things stamp set and I found the leaf brad in my stash. I followed this week's Taylored Expressions sketch (TESC 134) although I did flip it around and also eliminated the ribbon.
