CraftyCatz Challenge Time!

It's Friday - which means it's challenge time again at Crafty Catz. So do pop over and have a look at some of the great DT inspiration for this week's challenge which is 'Olympics'. Unless you've been on the moon for the last year or so, you'll realise that the Olympic Games will be starting in the UK very soon! So think about what the Olympics inspires in you craft-wise - and join in the challenge! 
We're sponsored this week by Crimson Cloud

and the prize is a choice of 3 packs of die-cuts.

My 'Olympics' effort is

The gold mirri board was embossed with a great embossing folder from CraftConcepts called 'starry night'. I added the 'rings' which were die cut with coredinations card and Sizzix circle dies. The numbers are peel-offs, and I went a bit mad with the spotty ribbons from Joanna Sheen (I love any sort of ribbon! - my stash of ribbons is quite a scary sight!), attached with small gold brads. The flags were 'left-overs' from our Diamond Jubilee Tea Party! 
So do join us at CraftyCatz this week! 
Back soon, Kim x
