This is the card I made for my younger son to send to his brother.  Dom is Barca and Ben is Madrid - they have been for about 15 years now since our neighbours went to Spain and brought them back scarves from the clubs!  Dom chose Barca, Ben Madrid and they've never looked back.  The arguments they've had this season!  The stamp is from Elybells and is coloured with ProMarkers.
