We're #1!!!

Good morning friends!  I'm back to with a challenge from Meljen's Designs.  I wanted to say card but it isn't.  It is a one sided 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" little plaque.  We love our Green Bay Packers here so I thought using this sentiment and making it a decoration for our house would be fun!

I used one of Meljen's $1 images called We're #1, colored it in Packer colors (green/yellow), and then pulled out some football-ish paper that I had in my stash to finish the card off.  The woven strips of paper are not all the exact size as I wanted to be able to read some of the words and the words are varying sizes.  I colored the sentiment with Copics and added green/yellow to the white piece around sentiment.  All the stars have Illuminate Smooch (my favorite shimmery product) on them.  Lastly, something you can't see very well, the edges of the bottom layer are green on the top/bottom and yellow on the sides. Smiley from

So, the challenge this week is 'stars', hence the starts on my project.  There have been some changes to the challenges at Meljen's so I'd suggest you go HERE to take a look at them and then HERE to see the challenge itself.  Most of all...create and have fun!

Thought of the day:  Women aren't supposed to make coffee.  In the Bible it says HEbrews.  (Sorry, just couldn't help myself!)
