Football bookmark (for BBTB2)

Do you have a football fan in your life?  Our amazing DT leader Susan has selected a man-themed football challenge for us at BBTB2 this week.  As the Kansas City Chiefs have started the season at an improbably amazing 9-0, enthusiasm is running high here in KC and everyone has broken out their  Chiefs fan gear!  I made a bookmark, which Son #3 requested to use at school, for my football project.  I am planning to put a number on the player as soon as Son#3 decides WHICH player he wants it to be.    You can check out the rest of the design team's man projects over at BBTB2 and join our challenge!

The bookmark itself is from Plaintain Schoolbook, cut at 6 inches (along with the shadow).  I used the Roly Poly font from Plaintain Schoolbook for my Go Chiefs.  The adorable little football player is from Everyday Paperdolls, along with the goal and grass.  I added some twine to finish it off.  Superquick and Son #3 was happy!
