Magnolia Down Under Challenges DT - Make a Scene!

Our challenge at Magnolia Down Under Challenges this week is so much fun!!! We want you to "make a scene" - no not throw a tantrum LOL but make a scene on your card :)!! This gave me the perfect opportunity to create a card I've had in my head since the summer kit arrived but I hadn't had chance to make - a 3D goal post on a card for Edwin playing football!

Here's another angle as I couldn't decide which shot I liked best LOL!

I have coloured Edwin with copics and mounted him onto foam pads so that he is in front of the grass. All the grass has been cut with a Whiff of Joy die.
I have created the goal with white cardstock and acetate, marking the net with the edge of my scoring tool dipped in stazon!!
The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps and I have stamped the rosette from the Magnolia summer kit onto red cardstock. I have added some shading to it with copics. The buttons and twine are from my stash. I have marked the lines of the football pitch with a white gel pen.
Here's the card folded down ready to go in an envelope!! Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges! Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous scenes! Thanks for looking! x
