I was inspired by the soccer card in the new 2005/2006 Idea book and catalogue for this layout. You can't tell very well by this scan but on the bottom right there is a gold eylet with a backwards gold brad in it. That idea came from the soccer card too. The background uses the baby wipe technique on So Saffron card stock.

Really nice card. Thanks for explaining the embellishment on the bottom; I wouldn't have figured that one out! TFS

Sue, the baby wipes technique is pretty simple. You take a baby wipe and squirt reinkers in a circle in the middle of the wipe. I used More Mustard, Mellow Moss, and NIght of Navy. Then you dab the baby wipe around your card stock. It works especially well on glossy card stock. You can swipe it across instead of dabbing for a different look.
