Olympic Football

Hey, here is an Olympic card I made to support the great Team GB :) I made a male card (I always neglect male cards) in red, white and blue.
I stamped the papermania pastimes image in black and coloured him in using promarkers. I then cut him into a scalloped boarder and edged the image with blue ink. I then cut a red backing and also edged this with the scalloped edge. Next, I cut a piece of blue stripy paper to back half the red edge; down the side of this I used a stripe of red glitter.

I used a red card blank which I topped with a union jack flag paper from the forever friends best of British paper pad. I edged the paper with red ink. I tied red and blue ribbon crossed down the left hand side of the card finishing with a knot. I attached a union jack button to the top corner of the image and blue, red and white card candy in the corner of the card. To finish, I added a union jack bow with two hat pins and red white and blue beads.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges: -
