Goal! Birthday Card for Soccer Fan

Our youngest grandson is a huge Seattle Sounders Soccer fan. In fact, today is his 9th birthday, and that is where he is - at a Sounders Soccer match with his family. I sure hope they win for him today!

I wanted to make his birthday card a soccer themed interactive card, but didn't have the dies PTI offers to make this a simple process.  So, after viewing the PTI You Tube video explaining how to use their spinner dies, I improvised, using what I had on hand.  (I also used Sounders colors of blue, green and gray, the colors of the beautiful Pacific Northwest!)
Product list follows. Wanted to mention a special product use: Glad Press and Seal
Laurie Willison has been posting projects using this product the past week, so wanted to try it for my layout. What a time saver! Thank you Laurie! (And to Jennifer McGuire's husband who apparently invented this awesome product).

Products Used:
Stamps: I Love Soccer - Stampin Up (Retired); Primary Alphabet - Stamp Craft; PTI Birthday Basics, Movers and Shakers Sentiments, Heart-2-Heart #5
Dies: PTI Heart-2-Heart #5 Banner dies, Modern Alphabet Dies, Be Happy (long rectangle border die); MFT Grass border
Cardstock: All Papertrey Ink; Spellbinders circle die and hole punch for spinner mechanism
Ink: PTI Smokey Shadow, Soft Stone; Tsukineko Brilliance Mediterranean Blue
