Meet Rocco Soccer & Be A "Dudette" For A Month!

Good morning all!
It's time for a new challenge over at Dude Time Doodles! Yee Ha!

Fancy yourself as a Dudette?
Want to be a Guest Design Team Member for a month?
Here's what you have to do!
This week at Dude Time Doodles we are kindly giving you a
FREEBIE image to play with!

Collect your FREEBIE image from the Challenge Blog,
create a project using the FREEBIE, then enter the challenge!

The Prize will be a Guest Design Spot with the "Dudettes" for a month!
Whoop Whoop!
We love having different people to play along with!
We always play nice, I promise!

I like to introduce a new friend of mine, he's called Rocco Soccer &
he's the FREEBIE you get to play with!

We the Dudettes loved playing along with him!
He loves to play football or as they call it in the good old US of A Soccer!
He reminds me very much of a school friend of mine, Eddie, who was a keen sportsman & was football/soccer mad! Still is in fact!
He now lives out in Jacksonville, Florida & teaches the game out there!

Back to Rocco!

I coloured him up with promarkers.
I've never been brave enough to do black hair before
but Rocco was crying out for black hair so that's what he got!
I was tempted to do the whole football scene thing but I've blogged that before
so thought I'd do something a bit different.
When I added the ball (which incidentally, you can also get as a
FREEBIE at the Dude Time Doodles Challenge Blog),
at his feet,there was a lot of white space at the top!
I didn't want to use any of my nesties, so I cut it off!
Yep I cut it right off & I like it like that! lol
I then matted him on to some black paper.
The base card was white linen embossed cardstock. I added a matt of black paper, then the black & white football design paper. Next I added two panels using a matt of the red paper then the striped DP.
 (Papers are from Papermania & I've had them for ages but didn't want to use them!)
I then added Rocco & decided that I would add lots of Card Candi
to embellish the card.

I added my greeting sentiment which I think may be from Sentiments 4 You
I simply ran a promarker around the edge to add a bit of colour
 then stuck on with foam tape for dimension.
I hope you like him & I hope you feel inspired to play along with our
Dude Time Doodles FREEBIE Challenge for the chance to be a
Dudette for a month!
