Rugby Wiper

Have been wanting to try a wiper card for a long time and finally got around making one. The instructions I found didn't quite work for me as the final card was too small for the image and so I worked it out a little so that I could get the entire card and all the components from a single A4 sheet.

I used my Lili of the Valley rugby stamp. 

The backing papers were made using a papertrey Ink stamp set (Grunge Me) and Basic Grey SU ink - 1st and 2nd Generation stamping to get the lighter grey. The sentiment pops up on top as you pull the sides. It's a peel off (I know, haven't used those in AGES!) which says Happy Birthday in Welsh.

I'm entering the card into the following challenges:
Lili Of The Valley - Anything Goes     Make It Monday - Anything Goes   
Here Come The Boys - Anything Goes   One Stitch At A Time - Use a Digi
Di's Digis - Male     Little Claire - Male Themed
Lexi's Creations - Man/Boy     Love To Create - Special Guy
