SCRSC72 -- Go, Fight, Win

Welcome to week 2 of the current Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge (SCRSC72)! The challenge is a Super Bowl challenge. You have until next Sunday to play along.

A few months ago, I was very overwhelmed with my DT work and family life, so I decided to step down from a few of my DTs. I had emailed Sparkle to let her know that I would be resigning from the SCRS team at the end of January. I didn't come to the decision very easily and have had many second thoughts as I truly love being on the team and working with her images. After spending a few days with her at CHA, I decided to ask her if I could stay on the team, and I am thrilled to report that she graciously welcomed me back! I will not be DT coordinator anymore, but I am happy to be a regular DT member. :)

I used Football Josh on my card and attempted to color him as a St. Louis Ram. :) As I was trying to decide on a layout for my card, I came across a great sketch by my sweet teammate and friend, Kim Yu. She's posted a fun sketch and is inviting others to play along with her. All of the details can be found HERE. I followed the sketch pretty closely, though I opted not to add scallops to the square frame. In lieu of the flower embellishments, I tried adding a few stars, but I couldn't quite get them to look right, so I left them off.
