School, Sports and Spirit

I shared this card last night at the release party. I was going for a cork board/white marker board look. The white piece is stamped with phrases and images from several of Melanie's sets. Like someone wrote some messages and drew some doodles. Then I laminated the front to make it look like a white marker board. The cork board is real cork. It is thin and easy to cut and use on cards. I stamped the stars border from Ribbon Stripes. I made a mini card to hang on the cork board. I stamped the phrase "You Aced It!" from Melanie's new set School, Sports, Spirit. And I stamped part of the football from Sporty Accessories. I placed some random brads to look like tacks. Of course this board belongs to a cheer leader, hence the pom poms and megaphone. And she is such a rock star with her ribbons.

I added some cheer sneakers and a girlie duffel bag on the inside.

The card size is 5.5" x 5.5". Please let me know what you think. I love to hear from my readers.
