My Sheri Crafts is All About Sports

First, I 'd like to say how very excited I am to be on the Fabulous Design Team here at My Sheri Crafts.  We have some wonderful challenges coming up so you will not want to miss a one.

This week we are ALL ABOUT SPORTS.  The challenge is to make a project that has to do with sports.  It can be any kind of sports.  So, of course I immediately thought Alabama Football.  Being a die hard fan, and the fact that I had made several projects already this fall about the TIDE, it seemed only natural.

But, I was looking through a magazine and saw a gorgeous photo of an ice skater and thought, I will do a card about ice skating.  I just love to watch ice skating.  It is so beautiful and graceful.  So here is my card.

The frame is cut from the Formal Occasions cartridge with paper from My Mind's Eye.   I wove some sheer pink ribbon around the edge of the frame and tied a bow.  The skater is cut from the Winter Woodlands cartridge.  I used paper from Colorbok.  I added some Stickles to her dress.  The base mat of the card was embossed with a snowflake folder in the Cuttlebug.  And then I inked it with a silver ink pad.  The inside of the card says "You Have Earned a Medal".  

Please go over to My Sheri Crafts and check out all the wonderful creations by the Design Team.  Go visit their blogs and leave them some love.  But most of all, be a good sport and join us in the challenge.  

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope you come back and visit real soon.
