Football on repeat

Hello lovely people,

I have a work colleague who asks me to make birthday cards each year for her granddaughter and grandson.  The grandson absolutely loves football and supports his local team, Forest Green Rovers, so I often try to incorporate that into my card.

It's a good job there are lots of football themed card images around and I haven't run out of ideas yet!

Boys birthday card featuring football boots

This year, as you can see, I went for a pair of football boots coloured in FGR colours.  Of course, I appreciate that the boots can be any colour, but I just thought it would be a nice touch.
