Sports Theme Throwback Thursday Challenge

This week Emma's challenge is to make a project with a sports theme. I do not have the sports mania cartridge so I decided to use the skiis from Everyday Paper Dolls. I wanted to use some paper from the 3 new DCWV holiday paper pads I just bought (couldn't decide which one, so I bought all three!).

Throwback Thursday Challenge #104 Plus a card by my sweet little Isabel!

This weeks Challenge from Emma was to make a Shaped card from the Creative Critters Cartridge and use the color orange in it. I loved making this card. The idea came to me in a flash and it went together so easily. I used the Gift bag cut from the cart and welded it into a shaped card. I used 2 strips of red tape and applied two rows of ribbon ruffling it as I went.
