My Little Champion

My daughter will be starting soccer in a few days, so I thought that she was in need of her own girly sports card. She saw me working on it and all she could see was the blue pennant that I was trimming. She asked if I was making a sailboat and I told her that it was a pennant and that people use them to show team spirit. She started crying and asked why I kept making sports things for my son and not for her. She, of course, didn't know that it was actually for her, but I still wanted it to be a surprise, so she will have to wait.




I used the new Papertreyink "All Star Team" and "All Star Team Additions" to create my card. I also used today's SC over on SCS. I haven't participated in a challenge for a while. I used some My Mind's Eye scraps that I lying around. I like the mix of colors and polka dots.






I stamped the images using Walnut Stain ink and the pink sentiment is Rasberry Fizz by PTI. I added some lace, ribbon and a little stitching for some texture. I had fun with this and hope my daughter will like it and feel appreciated.

Thanks for fluttering by! P.S. Here is the link for the box template in case you missed it.

Way to think outside the box Kelly. A feminine sports card! You should start your own product line with that idea! Love the DP (mme!!!) and the colors, ribbon - just all the Kelly touches! How cute that she cried!!!
