Today we are celebrating the  5th birthday of my Grandson Carson.  From the time he was small, Carson has loved any type of sport that involved a ball.  So, it is no surprise that the theme of his party is centered around a ball. His biggest decision was which ball to pick!

But, he finally settled on a soccer theme.  I wanted to make a special card for him and for awhile, I was really in a quandary.  Then it hit me!  I would make a spinner card and let the soccer ball spin in order to imitate a kicked soccer ball.

If you tilt this card to the right, then the ball spins to the right.  Follow this by tilting the card to the left to get it to spin to the left.  Honestly, I am delighted with how it turned out and I think he will be too.

Notice the Honeycomb Embossing Folder mimics the pattern in the soccer ball.  The color combo is just the colors of the ball along with the green for grass.
