A sporty retro card

Hi everyone!
I hope everyone is having a good weekend so far. We are still getting rain here in WA--but I think today may have been the last bit for awhile...So, I had a very relaxing afternoon and got the crafting bug around 11:30 tonight!

I really wanted to play along in two different challenges. The first is Simon Says Stamp. They wanted us to make either a sporty or patriotic card. And since I have a friend that asked me to make a football card, I knew the challenge was perfect! Then, I saw the latest sketch from the retro sketches site and I knew exactly what I was going to do! I love it when that happens! :)

Here's the sketch.
Here's my card. I left the sketch pretty much as-is except for some liberties on the placement of the sentiment. I used pattern paper from My Mind's Eye and a football stamp from a dollar bin that I embossed in white. I stamped the word "score" on the bottom portion of the paper--again from the dollar bin set that the football came in--and then added some orange ribbon. I added the sentiment banner and the card was done! I know the person receiving the card is a huge football fan so I'm hoping this puts a smile on his face...

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Sunday!


  1. I love the football theme! Wish it was raining here!

  2. Very cool card Pat! I'm sure the person receiving this card will love it. So glad you played this week's RetroSketch challenge!

  3. This is fab! Great job with the sketch, and I think this is the perfect card for a guy who loves football... he's SURE to LOVE it. Thank you for playing along with the Simon Says Stamp sporty/patriotic challenge this week! :)
