Cameo Creations Challenge: Sports Theme

Hey, everyone!  It's time for another Cameo Creations Challenge!  The theme of this challenge is Sports, and I had a lot of fun with my project.  Here's what I made:


I just LOVE it!!! Do you ever have a project like that?  One where you stop to look at it whenever you walk by?  Well, this is one of those projects for me.  First of all, I chose green and gold to root for Baylor University, where my husband and I went to college (and also where we met).  It could also do double duty for the Green Bay Packers (my hubby's favorite football team).  I should have done another one with blue, silver, and white, because I, of course, the true Texan that I am, will always be a fan of the Dallas Cowboys.  Oh, well...maybe later. :)  Anyway, on with how I made the card.

I got the cute cheerleader and football from the SVG Cuts Game Day SVG Collection.  The cheerleader's face is from the Peachy Keen Laughy Taffy Face Assortment.  I think it's just perfect for her.  I added a little gem to her bow with my iRock and some lines to her hair with some of my Copics.  I embossed the football with my Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles embossing folder.  I love this one...you can use it for so many things!  The cute pennants came from the Silhouette Online Store.  I added a stamp from the Pink by Design  Flying High Stamp Set to one of the pennants and sandwiched some toothpicks in between the cuts to make poles for them.  Finally, I added lots of ink and stitching lines to complete the front of  my card.  I love how it turned out!


I made the card base itself by copying the football shape, mirroring it above, and then welding the two together.  Then, I sized the welded shape a little smaller so the yellow wouldn't show from the front.  Then, I added a plain brown football on the back.  Hopefully that makes sense.  I should have taken some pics or a video of the steps.  

Okay, now it's your turn.  If you haven't yet, head on over to Cameo Creations to see what the other Design  Team members created for this challenge.  Then, you can create your own sports-themed project using your Silhouette machine and link it up there.  You'll have two weeks to enter, and you could win 7 free digis from Bugaboo Digital Stamps!  I hope you'll enter...I can't wait to see what you create!!!

I'm also linking this up at Sarah Hamer Designs for Link Up Tuesday

Thanks so much for stopping by today! :)
