My Sheri Crafts- Challenge 72 - All About Sports

It is time for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts and a big welcome to our new design team members! Challenge #72 is All About Sports..create a card/project with a sports related theme. I made a card for my little football player- Number 24! He was a big help and selected the image to use.
My card is 5" x 6 1/2" and is cut from yellow cardstock.
Cricut cartridge is All Sports. This is my first time to use this cartridge and it has some great looking sports images.
Page 33 - Football player is cut at 4" using all the layers. I am using colors to represent the school. Can you believe these 4th graders played football wearing white pants--well, they started the game in white pants!! I
decided to give the little guy blue pants!!
Page 63 - Phrase image is cut 5 1/4" on shift using white cardstock. Phrase layer is also cut at 5 1/4" using the black cardstock. I am pleased with the results of this cut and the size fit on the card. It took awhile for the Cricut to cut it, but it took me longer to remove the excess pieces off the mat!!
Lot of inking on the football player and the image is pop-dotted on the mat.

Now it is your turn to play along and show us your sports related projects! Visit My Sheri Crafts and say hello to the new design team members. You will find lots of great inspiration! Remember our challenges run for two weeks and the deadline is midnight CST Nov. 11. We look forward to seeing your projects. One person will be selected to be the next guest designer and several Ooo-La-La awards are chosen! How fun is that!!

Hope you enjoy my card! My grandson loves it! One day I will incorporate this card on a football scrapbook page for him! Just another way of keeping the card!
