Jack's Turning 5, Playing Soccer & Chewing Gum!

Well it's hard to believe, but my Favorite Nephew Jack, is turning 5 on Saturday! They sure grow up fast! This is Jack's 2nd year playing soccer, so I desided to use my 'Soccer Riley' for the first time! His uniform is green, and his number is #2, so I changed the stamp a little! My SIL also told me he's taken to chewing gum, so I made him a gum cover to go along with the soccer theme!
Now I did start out using this weeks sketch challenge on SCS, SC238, and while it started out to be a fairly simple card, I got carried away! Simple & I just don't seem to go together when unsupervised! lol
I used the top note die to cut out the while piece. Then stamped Riley in noir black palette & coloured him with copics. I used a tiny piece of sticky note to cover the #7, and then drew a #2 in with a fine tip marker.
The soccer balls are from a See-D's set called Mighty Sporty. The words are from Melanie Muenchinger's set 'Just so Sporty' from GinaK. The soccer balls & the words are popped up.
For the gum package, I used the same colours & stamp. I masked out the #7 again & drew in the #2. I used a stamp from SU 'Classic Backgrounds' for the background. His name was made with the Justrite Roman font. I'm pretty sure he'll have the fanciest gum wrapper on the playground!
