Chelsea Card


I got another order for a card for a man. I used a decoupage of chelsea football clubs badge mounted on chelsea backing paper. Used word art again for the name which I filled with the chelsea paper and then mounted on gold card. I used a peel off greeting which I coloured blue and finished it with a peel off border which is also coloured blue.
