FCCB 221 - Take Me Out To The Ball Game!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #221 Sports Theme

This Weeks Sponsor
SVG Cutting Files
~This Weeks Challenge~
Take Me Out to the Ball Game
Create a sports inspired project

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

Here is my project:

The red shape in the background is from Once Upon A Princess and I used Gyspy Font to create the Cheering sentiment, welding the letters together - I love my Gypsy! After attaching the words to the red diecut I ran both through my Cuttlebug, using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I had some baseball patterned paper that I used as a background and coordinated the green ribbon across the bottom with the cheerleading outfit, adding a brad on the end.  

The inside sentiment is cut from the Gypsy Wandering cartridge, continuing the message inside the card.

I found this super cute C.C. Designs Honey Cheerleader digi stamp and used Prismacolor Markers to colour her in. Some Perfect Pearls mixed with water and painted on the pom-poms added some shimmer along with a little bit of glittery gel pen on her outfit.

We are supposed to have very hot weather this week, so we are off to the local amusement park to enjoy some outdoor time before it gets too hot!  I hope you all enjoy your week!
