Fourth Time is a Charm


Oh. My. Goodness.  I made the Splitcoast CAS team!!!  AAAHHHH!!!!  I seriously couldn't believe I was reading my name...I think I looked at the announcement for a full two minutes before it sunk in and my mouth fell open.  So excited! 
 
This was the first card I posted for the try outs.  The challenge was to use the colors of your favorite sports team.  Since I'm not a huge sports fan, I opted to use Kentucky Wildcats colors (I know I'm a bit off here, as their colors are more of a royal blue but it was the closest I had) for my Dad's favorite team.  And I had to mix those colors with a manly card! :-)
 
This fun tie image and sentiment is from Sweet Stamp Shop, It's a Man's World.  I colored the tie with Copics and layered in on a heavy weight cardstock from Wplus9.  The paper on the bottom is from Core-dinations, it's the Tim Holtz Kraft Core collection (love this stuff and it's on sale!)  The Core Collection cardstock was embossed and then I used the Sanding Block to lightly remove some of the blue.
 
So...our first challenge will be posted on Monday, and it's a super fun one, so don't miss it!
