Soccer side-stepper card

Soccer '2010' fever is high in South Africa at the moment with only a few days left to go! The 'double stepper' card's base is made from green cardstock (SA's soccer colours). The soccer images and background papers come from Avril's Crafting Corner (the Football slider card) and from Juliannes Designs( the rosettes) on the http://www.card-making-downloads.com website. I flipped the left soccer boy on the computer to create the boy on the right, and then coloured his skin with watercolour pencils. The stripes on the uniforms and their hair are made with glue and foil. The banner was put together on my PC. I 'floated' the ball between the two boys by cutting out 2 images and sticking a piece of tiger's tail (beading wire) between them, and then fastening the two ends behind the boys' legs. By the way this card won 3rd place in the monthly competition!
