Olympic Spirit.



Crafty Cardmakers   new theme is 'the Olympic Spirit'.
Well we have had our break and are back with out new challenge.
We would like to see your Sport Inspired Creations, please pop over  to see what we have all been making and get all the details.
             

                    Our sponsors this time are -
 Di's Digi Downloads offering a store voucher for the challenge winner.




Hobby Art offering two fabulous stamp sets.



I have made a  Postcard collage. The background scene is a scene from the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics. This was inspiring to watch as it showed the Olympic rings being forged, then raised up over the stadium.
The other additions came from a Debbie Moore CD  together with some  free  images I found on the internet.
Notice the umbrella, just in case it rains!
Vintage photo was once again the distress ink I reached out to add extra shading.
I will be also entering  Challenge 51  at Craft Your Days Away  'Olympic Dreams'.

Thank you for stopping by I realy appreciate your comments
