*** SOCCER THANK YOU cards ***

Hello friends!!!  Welcome back to my little Blog corner of Blogland!  :)

Today I'm sharing some fun cards. As most of you know, I have 4 kids and they all play Soccer! Sooo, as the Spring Season is coming to an end, we were going to need a few Soccer themed *Thank You* cards for their great Coaches. I needed to find my M.I.A. Mojo, aka: {find some inspiration}, so I turned to SPLITCOASTSTAMPERS.com  to inspire me with their SCS Inspirational Challenge #IC287
We were to take inspiration from this fab Artistic site called: {Daniel Maher Stained Glass Studio}. I let the beautiful artwork on their site guide me with fun inspiration. :)

***CARD ONE ***
This first one was inspired by this *Day Lily* Medallion Window:

***CARD TWO ***
This second one was inspired by this *Very Red Snapper* window design: http://www.dmstainedglass.com/galler...el/snapper.htm.  I loved the rectangle shape and design of card. I tried to imitate the window frame with Cuttlebug EF circles & black matting around the main panel.
