One Stitch at a Time Challenge 123

This week at One Stitch at a Time, our theme is the Olympics! So, the Games themselves, sport, or anything that makes you think of the Olympics.

We're sponsored this week by the fabulous Joanna Sheen.

My image this week is from Pookie Designs and it's called Boy Angst.

For my card this week, I decided to make a card for a friend and colleague who's leaving the school where I work at the end of the summer term. The school is for children with Moderate Learning Difficulties, and we both work with a group of children with severe Autism.  We get a lot of challenging behaviour as a result, and some of it is because the child has lost control due to changes or overstimulation. And sometimes, it's a definite attempt to regain control in a situation where they're expected to do something they don't want to.

So, I made a card to reflect our work.
Card Front
The base card is a double-fold card from Craft Creations, and I created the sentiment and paper in Photoshop Elements, using the colours of the Olympic Rings and a gold/silver/bronze colour theme. I finished with some flowers. The larger ones I made, while the smaller ones are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Inside of the Card
And the Image in more Detail
The image is coloured with Promarkers, after being added to a background of the Olympic Rings and the medal platform.

I've used various Spellbinders dies - nestibilities and labels, and some ribbon in medal colours.

Hope you can join us this week.
