Olympic fever!

I love watching the Olympics - I'm glued to the TV and get excited to watch Team USA in action.  It always chokes me up to watch our athletes win gold and stand on the podium as they hear our national anthem.  This month's challenge at Words 2 Scrap by is also getting into the Olympics by challenging us to make a card that celebrated this event.
I used the Olympic ring colors for this card, along with Stamps of Life banners and a Paper Smooches sentiment:
The banners are cut from BoBunny Double Dots paper.  I think all the athletes are amazing - win or lose!
I'm off to watch the opening ceremonies.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. What a fun interpretation of the challenge! The banners remind me of the flags hanging above the medal stands. Thanks for taking up the Olympic challenge at!

  2. Erika, This is a terrific card. I love those banners with that border punch running along the top of your card. The sentiment is "amazing". Enjoy your weekend and the Olympics.

  3. Erika, Your card is so inspirational! Love how you incorporated the Olympic colors in those adorable banners -- and you've chosen the perfect sentiment! Thanks so much for playing along at W2SB!
