For My Coach

It's that time of year again.  I've had to make 4 cards for coaches on my son's soccer team.  How can a team of eleven kids have four coaches?  Due to the proximity of Valentine's Day, I  reused two ideas from last year since we have different coaches but here's a new one.  I used SU's retired Goal for the soccer balls.  They are punched with a 1 1/2 inch punch.  The two at the front are popped up on some recycled foam.  The sentiment is one from Freshly Squeezed Stamps, now closed.  All this is mounted on Real Red, Basic Black and then Gina K.'s Luxury White.  The card was inspired by this one on Splitcoaststampers.

Challenges This Card Meets:
Addicted To Stamps - Anything Goes
The House that Stamps Built - Thank You
City Crafter - You Matter
Cutting and Stamping - Masculine
Loves Rubber Stamps - Show Me Some Red
Card Mania - Use Some Red
Incy Wincy - Use Punches or Diecuts
