St. Luke's Charity Card Challenge - Go for the Gold!

The challenge this month at St. Luke's Charity Challenge is to create a card with the theme of "sports" in honor of the Olympics.  The summer Olympics are my favorite sports, but I had a terrible time coming up with an idea for a "sports" related theme.  I finally remember that I had these cute little gymnast stickers from Me and My Big Ideas.  I've had these stickers for years!  

I put the little gymnast on some white card stock and then cut her out.  I made a "floor" by embossing a piece of Kraft card stock with the PTI wood grain embossing plate, then inked it up with some brown chalk ink.  The three stars were also stickers that I put on card stock and cut out.  The little girl and the stars are all popped with dimensional tape.  The sentiment is from PTI.

The second card (I hope it qualifies!) is a digi stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I just love this sweet little swimmer!  I added the sentiment (a quote from Winston Churchill) before printing the image.  The image is colored with Prisma pencils, and the blue shadowing is Copics.  I also added a few "droplets" of glossy accents for the water.

Thanks so much for popping in! Hope to see you again soon!  Thanks a million for leaving a comment!  Until next time...


Pin It!

I love your gymnast sticker Susan, really sweet. I`ve been watching the Artistic Gymnasts this afternoon. What those girls can do with a hoop and some ribbon is amazing.
Your Mo Manning swimmer is gorgeous and ofcourse it`s perfect for the challenge.
Thank you so much for joining us this month at St Lukes.

Both cards are just perfect for our challenge Susan - thanks so much for joining in! It seems the sport theme is giving everyone some difficulty.

Love the use of stickers on the first - very clever. The second one is great - particularly apt for us in the UK as we've finally won a diving medal thanks to the lovely Tom Daley (even if you lot bagged the gold we're still happy with our bronze) so this little girl could be one of the diving stars of the future!

Thanks for going for gold with St Luke's.

Hi Susan - I'm very late in commenting on cards for this month's challenge - apologies. These are both just super. I love the sweet gymnast - particularly appropriate as Gabby won gold! But I adore the little swimmer girl and that lovely quote - perfect for all Olympians! Thanks for playing along with St Luke's Going for Gold Challenge!
