CPS 277-Part 1

Today I decided to join the Card Positioning Systems challenge.  The challenge was to create a card using the below layout.  This is a really fun layout!

My inspiration today came from one of my favorite quotes "Win without boasting.  Lose without excuse." by Albert Paysor Terhune.  So I immediately thought of sports. 

I had a "kit" that I had picked up called "Sports" by Colorbok.  All my items were from this kit except the black cardstock and the embellishment. I started by cutting out the card using black cardstock from my stash (7 1/4 x 10 1/2).  I used the army green grunge paper and cut it 1/4" less than the card.  I used the red numbers paper and the blue silver star paper as the lower rectangles.   Then I cut the red and white star strip from the die cut accents as the thin rectangle.  I stamped "You're a STAR" with glue on a small black rectangle and used Martha Stewarts White Gold glitter for the words and around the edges.

I thought this would be a nice card for a boy/young man-someone in sports. 

Thank you for looking and have a great day!

What a lovely card, Renee! I'm so glad you linked your blog up to the Moxie Fab World Blogroll. It will be great to stop by and say "hello" from time to time!
