Celebrating! It's Coming Home

I wasn't sure if I would be posting today having completed a full year without interruption yesterday at the end of a tiring school trip.  However, the July prompts on Tag It Tuesday, combined with England's semi final win this afternoon, were just too good to resist.  I actually used all four prompts for a change, although a minimum of two are allowed.
1 Glitter; 2 Add song lyrics; 3 Celebrations; 4 Something random on your desk.
Obviously the celebration is England making a World Cup semi final for the first time in 28 years.  When I went back into my craft shed having been away for a week, the first thing I saw was a tag that had already had a mop up sheet background added to it.  It had been my first attempt for the tag that I shared yesterday (see HERE).  I used it to fulfil prompt 4.
I added a few strips of music from my book of scores of  Beethoven Sonatas.
I adapted one of the Union Jack stamps from Claritystamp by masking off sections before inking it up with Poppy Archival ink.  The masks were then removed before stamping England flags over the tag.
I have had a sheet of glittered footballs (soccer balls) in my stash for a while and cut out three of them to add to the tag, thus fulfilling prompt 1.  The overhangs were trimmed off.
It only remained to add the song lyrics (prompt 2).  It wasn't hard to decide which ones to use!  It's coming home, it's coming home, it's coming... football's coming home!
