Squigglefly - Run for the Border

A new month and a new challenge at Squigglefly!
Hello my friends ... so glad you came to visit!

Today's challenge theme at Squigglefly is:

(add something to the border of your card)

Isn't this little soccer player adorable!!  
The image is by Cheryl Grant Alger and is called 'The Game Is In The Player' ... what encouraging words!  The background 'Soccer ball' image is by James Horvath (a new artist for Squigglefly) and I decided to create my own background in Word10 by copy/pasting this image then adding a touch of color to the grass.  What do you think?

Not only is Mr. Horvath a new artist for Squigglefly but we're thrilled to welcome another new artist to the group ... Niina Niskanen!  Be sure to stop over and check out their images ... awesome!

I would like to share this creation in the following challenges:
Quirky Crafts Challenges - Something Beginning with "S" (soccer)
Open Minded Crafting Challenge #9 - Sports and Activities
Jellypark Challenge - One for the Boys

Thanks so much for stopping and I hope you'll come over to Squigglefly to see what my team mates have created to inspire you today.  Then, why not join in the challenge fun ... I'd LOVE to see what you create!
Have a fabulous day!

Papers:  White cs, Garden Green cs, Black cs
Accessories:  Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, Martha Stewart Vine Trim border punch, pop dots, Viva 'Susan's Garden' Ladybug kit,
