 As for the Dp. I was hanging out with my scrapbook sister Ann. I happen to tell her about the Soccer card. She was cute.She found paper and the Recollections Puffy 3D Soccer Balls and she sent me via email other soccer cards for inspiration. Thanks so much Girl. 
I had not a clue. LOL.

Die Cut- Martha Stewart  Garden Trellis punch
Now  I wanted netting for the soccer net. I could not find anything! For Real. So I got an idea. I used my Martha Stewart Garden Trellis punch did two rows (Top and Bottom) and cut the Trellis off. Looks likes Soccer Netting! I think. LOL Also I rounded the net to give it a nice rounded look around the image.

Tim Holtz Antique Linen-  Around the edges of the Garden Trellis Punch. Short story. During lunch I went to Michael's to just take a peek. Anyway I met a teacher who was teaching Cricut Classes. Anyway she gave me the idea for the Tim Holtz Antique Linen around the edge of the Soccer net. Soccer nets look dirty after the ball has been kicked around. Of course I can't find her card at the moment! Thank you.
