2-4-6-8...

So the reason I made this card was because I needed to practice making this double slider card in preparation for my upcoming class. I had to make sure I remembered how to make it! I decided to FINALLY use my Cheer Anya stamp. Don't ask me why I bought her... I was never a cheerleader, nor do I have any connections with any. I just think she's pretty darn cute. Maybe its because I like the movie "Bring It On".. yes, I admit it. It's pretty hilarious.
Anyway, back to the card... Since we got some complaints about school colors that I used to make the samples at Island Scrapbooking, I decided to pick colors that were not associated with any school, yet fit Anya's personality- pink and black right? I don't think any school has these as their colors.
So, a looooooong time ago, I saw someone had made a tutorial on using embroidery floss for her pom poms. I'm sorry, I can't recall what blog it was from, but if anyone knows, please let me know so I can give credit to her cute idea. Here's a better look...
Don't laugh at my cheer...
I tried to remember cheers from my high school days, but my mind was blank and all I could come up with was the "bus driver cheer". hee hee. Do kids still do that?
Who do I appreciate? You of course! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving comments. Yay... its the weekend! Have a good one!
Supplies used:
Cheer Anya- The Greeting Farm
Number dies- Sizzix
Cardstock- Bazzil
Embroidery Floss
Ribbon
Markers- Copics
