MCT Inspiration Wednesday: FIFA Birthday Card

by Veronica

Today we're sharing projects that we were 'inspired' to make. Last week, our almost-11-year-old nephew, Zack, stayed a few days with us. He and The Hubs both love soccer, so you can bet that the World Cup games were on in our house!

They even went outside and played soccer with the boys next door. Yep, The Hubs went outside to play, too. I think he was just waiting for an excuse (Zack) to go play!

Zack's birthday is coming up next week. I knew that a FIFA inspired birthday card would be perfect for him, so I Googled the World Cup logo and found this interesting parrot image. Now, its not the official World Cup logo, but the bright colors really caught my eye and the shapes seemed like fun.

I cut the shapes by hand, imitating the shapes that make up the parrot in my inspiration image. The "Happy" was cut out in white card stock and then colored with my Copics to coordinate with the shapes.
