Go Steelers!!

Hehe!! Hubs and I love the Steelers so that is who we will be cheering for Superbowl Sunday!! This card is for Sherrie's challenge for Taylor's celebration. This sketch had me stumped for a while until I was looking on my desk that I had colored earlier in the week just waiting to turn it into a card. The perfect sketch for this image!!!! The old brain started turning and I came up with a couple of ideas!! LOL!!! The image is Quarterback Ian from The Greeting Farm which will be coming to Treehouse Stamps any day now!! I am so excited, I think these stamps are so cute!!! I colored him using my Copic markers and cut the image out using my circle Nestabilites. The panel behind is also cut out with my circle Nestabilites with black cardstock. The "football" was cut out using my oval Nestabilites and then run through my Cuttlebug using my Mesh embossing folder. I then poked so holes and stitched for the thread!! I cut out strips of black and Yo Yo yellow and attached them to a piece of dp from Papertrey's Father Knows Best paper pack. I added the little rhinestones in the corners and then attached to black cardstock as the base. The top left corner still looked a little blah so I pulled out my Simple Alphabet set from Papertrey and created the Go Steelers sentiment!! Perfect!! Just what the card needed!!!
If you are interested, there is a post below from another celebration challenge!!
