Midweek Magnolia Challenge - Week #22

Hi Everyone

We have a fabulous challenge this week at Midweek Magnolias.

To coincide with a little sporting event we're hosting in the UK at the moment, our theme for this week's challenge is "The Olympics" - You can either make something with a sporting theme or use the colours of you country's flag, or both of course!!!

Here's my card:

I used Gymnastics Tilda with Ribbon from the Winner Takes All collection and coloured her using my Copic Markers.  Here's a close-up:

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crazy Amigo Challenge - Use Dies or Punches (I used a Nesties Circle Dies for the Olympic Rings)
Die Cut Diva - Anything Goes
365 Cards - Olympic Rings
Scrappy Frogs - Red, White & Blue
The Squirrel and the Fox - Make it Sporty

The papers and little bows are from Papermania's Portobello Road Collection and I cut the Olympic Rings using Nestie Circles.

I hope you can join us in our challenge this week - We've have three prizes on offer, Gold, Silver and Bronze!!!  I can't wait to see what everyone creates.

Thanks for stopping by.
