Super Bowl Cards

Hey everyone! It's been quite some time! Hope you're doing well! I've been away from crafting for a little while, but I really want to get back into the swing of things. A few years ago, I created some Super Bowl cards using the colors from that year's teams. So with the big game this past weekend, and Meljen's Design's Team Spirit challenge, I figured I would give it a try!. Here's a look:




This card is inspired by colors for the Seattle Seahawks, and the sketch I used was from the Fusion Card Challenge.



To be completely honest, I was going to only create the first card...I just figured the Seahawks would win again...or so I hoped. I shared my coloring in progress with friends on Facebook and Instagram and everything. However, as you know, the Patriots ended up coming back and winning the game...(Sigh) So I figured it was only fair to create a second card using New England's colors. 


I thought this little bear was adorable, and even though he's wearing colors for the "other" team, I really like this one. The sketch is from a cool blog I just found called The Challenge. Here's a peek at the sketch:


In addition to the challenges posted above, and my personal Super Bowl theme, I'm sharing it for the Scraps of Color Anything Goes blogger challenge. It was great getting that card-making mojo working once more! As I mentioned in my original post, its cool working with different color combos. So if you find yourself stumped, just pull out colors from your favorite team and go for it! You never know, lol...Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
