"Since the Summer Olympics are now going on, I decided the theme for this month would be our very own Calendar Girls Olympic challenge. There are two parts to this month’s theme:
1. The colors of the rings on the Olympic flag are: blue, yellow, black, green and red. Your card must have at least one embellishment and it must be in one of those colors.
2. Please make a card based on one of the Olympic events. The events in this summer’s Olympics are: Archery, Badminton, Basketball, Beach Volleyball, Boxing, Canoeing, Cycling, Diving, Equestrian, Fencing, Soccer, Gymnastics, Handball, Judo, Rowing, Sailing, Shooting, Swimming, Table Tennis, Taekwondo, Tennis, Track and Field, Trampoline, Volleyball, Water Polo, Weightlifting, and Wrestling."
Or, we could make a card representing the Olympic Opening Ceremony or a card representing the host country, Great Britain.
Here is my creation representing the Sailing event:
I love this layout I found on SCS and just had to use it again. My yellow brad meets the requirement of an embellishment in one of the ring colors. I used white cardstock as my base. I also used used Tempting Turquiose, Midnight Muse and Pumpkin Pie cardstock (SU!) My designer paper is "funfetti streamer" by We R Memory Keepers. I used my fabulous penanent punch (SU!) as well as my circle punches (SU!) and my Nesties. The image is from the set Moving Forward (SU!) and the sentiment is from the Happy for You set (SU!)
