Congratulations Card for Josiah

Good morning all you Maggie lovers!  We have had some beautiful weather the last few days.  Today is raining, but we really need rain. My hubby and I have worked really hard this past week and got our veggie garden all in. 

My card for today is a celebration/congratulations card for a young man from our church who has made a name for himself playing soccer.  I'm not sure of all his accomplishments, but they were many!

All of  his accomplishments call for a very special card, which I am entering in the Tilda's Town Challenge #55 - Let's Celebrate.

The image is Soccer Edwin and colored with Copic markers.
The papers are from a We Are Memory Keepers 6 x 6 stack called MVP.
The medal is from Magnolia's Sports collection.   The gold circle in the medal center was punched from a scrap of gold glitter paper.  The ribbons were colored with Copics.
The black star was cut using Spellbinders Stars dies and edged with orange rhinestones from a wonderful package of stamping goodies from my friend Lillian.
The orange ribbon was from my stash.
The orange and black are the colors of Josiah's school.  I modified Edwin's shirt to more closely resemble Josiah's shirt and his number.

Here is the card opened.  The font I used to write "Congrats! Way to go, Josiah!" is a little difficult to read in the picture.
The designer paper is from the MVP stack.  The word "For" in the "For the Love"  doesn't show up very well.
The orange star was punched using the Stars dies.  The small stars were punched with Martha Stewart's Star Confetti punch.

We are so proud of Josiah and all that he has accomplished.  Way to go, Josiah!!

Thank you for stopping by and spending some time.  I hope you have enjoyed your visit.

This is super great, Kathy -- a specialized card for Josiah - he must be absolutely thrilled with it! Love how this has all come together - sometimes very hard to make a masculine card, but you've surpassed the obstacles on this one! WooHoo, keep up the great work!!
