All about the OLYMPICS at HMFMC

 Hello and welcome back to my little corner of blogland!
It's all about the wonderful Olympics Games at House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.  My Teamie Heather has chosen this great theme that is perfectly fitting during these special times when our world's Nations unite to compete.  So create anything representing the Olympic Games. The possibilities are endless. We were inspired by Nations, Flags, Countries, Sports, Teams, Athletes, Colors, Results, Medals; Gold, Silver, Bronze, World Records and Olympic Records, Summer/Winter Games, Olympic Rings, ...etc... Here is my Olympics take....
My representation is for my country, the good 'ole USA.  The card came together by using this House-Mouse Designs Glorious stamp. The image was stamped multiple times, colored, sponged and layered. Its framed on a Marianne Designs Stars Circle Die. The BG was made with the mini stars Embossing Folder. The Olympic rings were created using two sized circle punches. Card is topped off with the Star and USA Silver Charms.

STAMPS: House-Mouse Designs, Stampabilities, "Glorious Feeling", featuring Muzzy, #HMUR1033, from the year 2003.
PAPERS:  White Heavy CS (110lb), Bazzill Navy Blue CS, Glossy Red CS
INK:  Memento Tuxedo Black,  Studio G BLues (for sponging Sky), COPICS
ACCESSORIES: Marianne Designs Star Circle Die, Spellbinders Circle Dies, Circle Punches, Mini Stars Embossing Folder by the Paper Studio, Silver Cording, Ranger Diamond and Silver Stickles, Glitter Glues, MS Ultrathin White Powder, Silver Charms, Mini Star Rhinestones
