Get Your Game On!

I'm sure a lot of people in the US will be glued to their TV sets for the Superbowl on Sunday!  Our team (the Patriots) didn't make it this year so the thrill of watching the game isn't quite as high as it would be if they were playing - but we will probably have the game on even if we don't watch it closely!

My card today depicts a much simpler game  -  checkers!  and I created it for the Cas-ology Cue Card challenge -  the cue card this week is GAME.
I stamped this cute little game board from Lockhart Stamps onto red card stock, cut it out and layered it onto my 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" card that I had embossed with the Spellbinders Fleur de lis square.
I had the perfect sentiment to go along with my game board -  it's from the Waltzingmouse set called Half Pint Heroes.  I popped the checkerboard up on foam tape.


Stamps:  Checkerboard - Lockhart Stamps, sentiment from Half Pint Heroes set - Waltzingmouse
Paper:  white, Pure Poppy - PTI
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories:  foam tape, Fleur de Lis Squares - Spellbinders.
