Bugaboo (http://www.bugaboostamps.com/) has a new challenge for you! Head over to http://catchthebugblog.blogspot.com/, check out all the details, look at all of the creations from the design team--and then play along with us! We are celebrating the start of the World Cup! Your creation needs to feature the team colors of the team you want to win the World Cup, or colors of your national team, or colors of your favorite sports team. I'm not a big soccer fan, but of all the places that I have ever visited, Italy is my hands-down favorite--so I decided to feature the colors of Italy--red, green, and white! Several years ago, I was in Milan, Italy, when World Cup games were being played there. It was neat to see groups in all of the different national colors. The fans were fantastic, so I think I could learn to like soccer.
My card uses some DP, border, and a die cut that I had left over from a scrapbook page I made from our trip. (If you saw my DP, you would understand why I can never identify the manufacturer of the papers I use--I save large scraps!) I used Papertrey cardstock, colored my BB soccer boy image with copics, and added crystal effects to the soccer ball. VIVA ITALIA!
This card will be entered into a challenge at http://craftycreationschallenges.blogspot.com/. The challenge is called "Child's Play".
