Soccer Tilda

A girl in mt kids club at church likes to play soccer so this card is for her.I kept it kinda simple because she is a bit tomboyish - that and it was late last night when I was making it and I had to get it out today if it had any chance of making it to her by her birthday. lol


I took Edwin's body from playing soccer and added a Tilda head from a Christmas stamp but can't remember her name. It started out all blue but then I thought it needed a little more color so I added the red background then there was some red mulberry paper laying about so I added it and then put red flowers in the grass to help tie it together. I put some buttons on and added a bow at the bottom. Tilda/Edwin is all colored with copics. Hope you enjoyed my head "transplant."

Yes I really do like the way you have that torn paper background. Lol - Tilda/Edwin, what a grand idea to get what you wanted and needed. You really can not tell you have performed major surgery here. I love the colors you have used. So cute, I am sure the little girl will love it!
