I've used a bit of 'artistic licence' with the sketch for this card but I hope it will be acceptable. After first rotating the sketch I have replaced the vertical strips with the sides of the goalpost. I have made the goal by attaching a piece of net to acetate. I then attached the goalposts to hide the joins. I stamped the footballs and cup, cut them out and attached with foam pads. The image has been coloured with pencils and chalks (for the dirty effect). I finished it by adding the child's name with peel-off letters.
