A birthday card for football player

A 13th birthday card for one of my sons friends. I have used a 8x8in white card and covered it with Anna Marie gingham paper. I have used a strip of red card and blue and blue and white twine I have used a Go Kreate die to cut out a printed sentiment. I have printed a football club badge and die cut it with a Tonic rectangular die from a nesting set and die cut the next sizes in red and blue and layer the football badge. I have used Marianne dies to cut the cup and 13. I used mirror card for the cup for a realistic look and I cut the 13 in red and blue and slightly offset them when I stuck them down. To complete I added stars that I cut with a punch.
