I know I get some international visitors so let me explain... Arsenal are one of the top English football clubs..(that's soccer to some of you!). My son is football-crazy , he plays it and he watches it and Arsenal are his favourite team.

For his 9th birthday, I used a Bugaboo digital image and I traced the balloons in Silhouette Studio and filled them with the Arsenal logo. I printed it and coloured the rest of the image with markers. I added embossing, diecuts and a stamped sentiment.
