Tennis Star

     I love Fridays!  It means I get to share another fun card with a silly and delightful QKR Stampede image.  Our newest challenge starts today and will run for a week.  I've used "Playing Tennis."

     I colored the tennis star with ProMarkers and used water colors on the background.  I cut the image with a die from Spellbinders. 

     I found two scraps of paper in the basket, neither of them big enough to make the frame, so I cut each one (again, Spellbinders) and then layered them together on a diagonal to frame the image.  I printed the sentiment, hand cut it, and inked the edges before adding it to the card.  I used tiny gems from Stampendous for a bit of sparkle.

     Oh, you want to know what the sentiment means?    You haven't figured it out?   It was on a personalized license plate the first time I saw it.  Give up?  OK, how about "Tennis, anyone?"  lol

Hi, Connie! Cute little tennis player, and a great use of color in the background panel cut on the diagonal. What a cute sentiment - and no, I did not "get it" until the last word of your post LOL Wishing you a great week-end! hugs, de

Such a fun card Connie! I guess, no, I don't get your sentiment, but my guess is it's a funny one? Really loving how you've split up your die cut on this! HUGS
