Stampin' Up! Goal for DAD!

It's cold here and I want to be back in Florida  or at the very least Washington DC where we've just been on our hols!  My neck problem isn't gone completely, but after a visit to the out of hours clinic at 4am two days before we flew to Virginia, drugs and rest finally made me fit enough to travel with the family to stay one night in DC before training to Florida to 'do' Mickey!  We really did do it too!  On our last night in the Magic Kingdom we left the park at 3am due to the extra magic hours on offer to anyone staying within Disney.  We had a ball and I'll share a few pics soon once all downloaded, but worry not, not all of them! 
Now for my card.  Tomorrow is my Dad's birthday and I can share this with you as he doesn't 'compute'.  He's been a soccer fan for years and so I've made this for him taking part of my layout from Michelle Zindorf, only difference is she's much better at brayering than me, but I like the effect and my ball isn't embossed as I've run out of black embossing powder, (note to self remember on next Stampin Up order!).
Goal is a simple stamp set consisting of the ball and sentiment 'goal'.  It's perfect for the footie fans in your house and is easy to use.
