Let's get sporty..

Hey Peeps!
Sorry I have been away a few days but I am sure you are really grateful for the peace and quiet LOL
I hope all is well - its fantastic here as I have just started my lovely 3 days off for this week - wooooooooo no work 'til Saturday!!

I am here today with my DT card for the new Creative Inspirations challenge.  The theme this week is Let's Get Sporty. So we want to see all of your sporty creations!
Now, I must admit I struggled with this theme, as I wanted to use a certain image and one of my teamies used it first so back to the drawing board.  I used to own a shed load of Magnolias and had nearly all of the sporty ones - here's a time I wished I've never sold them!! But then a brain wave - my NEW Thelwell CD ROM would be FAB!!

I printed a card companion from the CD ROM along with a sheet of the purple patterned paper.  I added the card companion & the elements onto kraft card. 
 I made a rosette from the purple paper - this took a while I couldnt get it to work how I wanted it - kept coming out too big but I finally got there. I scored it with my big score score board.
 I added ribbon and jewels from my stash and then finished with sentiments stamped in Memento Elderberry ink.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenge:
Papertake Weekly - Happy Anything I went with Happy Birthday
Cute Card Thursday - Celebrate
The ABC Challenge - F is for Festive, again I went with Birthday

I am off to watch Judge Rinder and tidy up my flat - I dont know how but there's craft stuff all over the place!! Have a FAB Day!!! x x x x
