Crafting for Gold Closing Ceremony :-)


Today our very own Ali and Tony, the owners of Crafty Ribbons are sponsoring and one lucky entry will win this FABULOUS prize !! :-)

I missed the last House Mouse Challenge and the DT did some amazing Olympics cards and I was particularly inspired by THIS card made by Kate and THIS card by Sue Drees when I made this :-)

I followed the fab sketch on the Sketch File and made the Olympic rings using Spellbinders Circle nesties, I coloured them in the appropriate colours with Copics and glittered with Hero Arts Crystal Glitter ,,, very sparkly IRL :-)

I will add links to all the stamps I used at the bottom of this post. The 1st one is an acrobat, the 2nd is jumping for joy at getting a medal, the 3rd has just completed a vault, the 5th is having a ickle rest after a run, and the 5th is looking at the scoreboard to see his result :-)

They were all coloured with Copics and I used a I and 3/8 inch circle punch to cut them outand glued them behind the rings. I used red card for layering and embossed some plain white card using an M-Bossibilities Whimsy folder, I thought the design looked a bit like the Olympic rings ,,,, :-)

I finished with a fab red/ white swiss dots ribbon, I made a flat bow and added a white button , both from Crafty Ribbons and I added some red Hemptique twine to tie a bow on the button :-)

Thanks for looking :-) For more details of how you can join in with the closing ceremony hop along to the Inspiration Blog where you will find the details and see what my teamies have done too :-)

Thanks hun, so let me see what I see following your fabulous comment on mine, the first one is our fabulous gold medallist in the diving Tom Daley in action, the second is his coach proud as punch, the third is Tom after his last score realising he had a medal of one colour or another, the fourth is just one of the many in the crowd watching that score board and the last one is one of the many in the crowd after seeing his score

just brilliant

Hugs Kate xx

Ha ha! What a fabulous card, Lols. Just love the glitter rings and the little story about what all those mice are doing. Love the look on the face of the 'vaulting' mouse :-)
Hope you're having a good weekend.
'fraid the house sale fell through a while ago (it's a few posts back on my blog). We live in hope that we can get back on track though.
