One Stitch at a Time Challenge 59

The theme for this week's challenge at One Stitch at a Time is Father's Day/Sports. There's be a new collection of images and papers avalable at the Stitchy Shop for May, and like the previous collections, it's free when you spend $10, and the DT are all using images and papers from it.

I got some papers from JLJ designs, and decided to use them to make a card for my oh.

I made a 'collage' of six of the eight papers on an A4 format in Photoshop Elements, measured to the correct dimensions for a shutter card. I printed the sheet onto Ryman Matte Coated Ink Jet card. The various panels have computer-generated text with the names of various sports my husband has spent significant time either playing or watching lately.

And from a different angle!
The sponsor this week is Digis with Attitude, who are offering three digis of the winner's choice.
And Cosmo Crkcket who're offering a crafting kit.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Dude Time Doodles where they have a photo for inspiration,
Lady Bug Crafts Challenge where anything goes,
Papertake Weekly where they want spots and stripes,
Tuesday Throwdown where they want polkadots
Bunny Zoe where they want 'one for the boys',
Craft Your Passion where 'you've been spotted',
Incy Wincy where they want 'bright and bold'
