We Are The Champions & We Have More Blog Buddies!

Hi all, is it Sunday again?
This week at The Crafty Pad, for Challenge#127 the theme is
 Use Bold/Bright Colours Or Pastel Colours!
Our sponsor this week is 
The lovely Crafty Emma's Store,

who is offering this wonderful clear stamp set!

Here's my card!

A double twisted easel!
As You can see I went for bold & bright with a bit of pastel!
I used the Bradley With Football image.
June as well as being the most popular month for weddings,
is supposedly the start of summer??? & the end of the football season for all the school teams!
This card is for the cup winner!
The image was printed out as it comes

then,I flipped it to get the opposing player!

I coloured them both with promarkers, matted onto some black cardstock & then some green.
I used a sheet of green cardstock for my base card, as I felt this represented grass!
I used a punch that I've had forever in my toolbox to punch the stars which I then folded up.
The card was lined with black underneath to highlight this!

I used some mesh that I've had in my stash for ages, just to give a bit of detail across the base.
For the stops, I used a couple of black buttons which I threaded with some ribbon.
The diecut cup was from a candy that I won.
 I threaded some red white & blue ribbon through the handles & then stuck it on to a piece of
black card which I had punched the corners of & folded so that it stood up!
I look forward to seeing what you come up with for 
The Crafty Pad Challenge be it Bold & Bright Or Pastel
