Go Sochi Team USA

It's time to show your pearls at Sassy Cheryl's.  Jasmina is the hostess this week and pearls are her challenge request.  Anyone who knows Jasmina's style knows she is frilly, feminine and pearly!  I happen to love them myself, so I found a way to use them on the USA Flagpole.  See the closeup pic above.

How do you like "Pure Joy"?  She is Cheryl's new digi and I fell in love the minute I saw her.  I envisioned her for a celebration card initially.  But now I have seen her used on so many other cards and her possibilities are endless.  She is definitely one you will want in your library because of her precious smile, leaping legs and versatility.  When I downloaded her, I showed my hubby and asked him what he thought I should do with her.  He immediately said "The Olympics".  Now that thought had not even crossed my mind, but I knew he was right.  It was something different for me to try and gets me out of my safe spot.

I Googled the Olympics and found this picture and thought it would make a nice background for Miz Pure Joy.  I colored her with Copic markers, fussy cut her and popped her up on foam tape.  The star brad was from my stash.  I popped some tiny little pearls on the flag pole and wallah!  The silver border stickers are from Elizabeth Crafts.

Basically CAS but I liked it.  My hubby is right again.  I am getting used to it.  He is my best critic and coach.  We make a good team.  He won't make cards, but he does like being an adviser.

So find some pearls or pearl stickles and make yourself a Sassy card.  If you enter and win our challenge this week, you will win 2 free digis from Sassy Cheryl's shop.  You can't win if you don't enter.  The winner is chosen at random so don't be afraid to give it a try.  Click here and you will be taken to the Sassy Cheryl Challenge Blog.  Check out my Design Team Sistahs to see what they created.  They rock, I promise.

Thanks for popping in and looking at my creations.  Please feel free to leave a comment for me.  I love reading them.
