Hi Krafters! I'm here for another challenge...The Creative Cutter Room is hosting a sports themed challenge. My FAVORITE sport to watch is football, and I am soooo excited for the NFL season to start on Sunday!

I am also excited for my school's football team...We just beat the Miami Hurricanes in our season opener this past Monday...Whooo, go Terps!!

My personal favorite professional team is the Pittsburgh Steelers. (Black and Yellow for life!). However, since I was born and raised in Redskins nation I also have love for my home team. With that being said, I decided to do a football themed card for a Redskins fan. (Hence the burgundy and gold.)

This is a modified easel style card that I made with the Sports Mania cartridge. I would love to do a little tweaking to this card and make more in the future (in black and yellow!), but I thought this was nice for my first time trying this style. 

I'm also linking this card up to Scrapalicious and Patches of Pink because they are both hosting fall-themed challenges/link-up parties.. When I think of the fall, I immediately think football season, so I think it should fit in! 

Enjoy =]
