The Male Room

The theme for this week at  is "Olympics/ Sports". One of the events I enjoy watching the most is the Gymnastics competition. I found this very nice image on the Internet and created my card around it. I didn't want to go with the usual colors of Red, White and Blue that the USA wears because , I still have the card I made for the 2012 Olympics with the date on it and no use for it. I thought for this Olympics I would make it less "Olympic-y" and more of an encouragement card.
I did use a sort of gold color to signify the gold medals and picked up the purple color from the image as the other color for the card.

Pattern Paper - me&myBIG ideas "Champs Specialty Cardstock" stack
Image - Internet download
Top Corners - Fiskar Corner Punch
Sentiment - I added the sentiment to the image before down-loading it.
Embossing - On the gold strip I used a Cuttlebug "Spots & Dots" folder
Purple satin ribbon from my ribbon scrap container, the purple metal twirl circle I have in different colors, no idea where I bought them.

Thank you for following TurtleBug's Trail!
