Card- Celebrate Today

Hey everybody! Sorry for no post yesterday, as some of ya'll know we had Autumn's cheer competition yesterday! Well they got 4th out of I think 7 schools! Not to bad, they needed to do more tumbling! Autumn can't quite do her back hand spring on her own yet without a spotter, so she couldn't do it in the routine! But they really did great, all the squad was very "together", just what they have been working on, so I guess it payed off! They did get a trophy too! There was 3 different levels, (Pre-K, K & 1st) , (2nd, 3rd, 4th), (5th & 6th, 7th). We had a squad in every level from our school, the first level brought home 2nd place, the second level brought home 3rd, and the 3rd level brought home 4th! Our school has been involved with the competitions for the past 3 years, and every level has placed and gotten a trophy every year! Not bad! :)
On to crafty stuff... Well I made this card for our employee's fiance'e, but since this past weekend, it is now his wife! :) I made it for her a couple of weeks ago for her birthday, and I really liked it! I used some of the zebra print fabric that I bought at WalMart and made one of the cute flowers from Heather Bailey's blog! You really should check out her fabric, I bought some a couple of weeks ago, it is really nice! :) So here's the card! And don't forget to check back on Friday for a new Everything but the Kitchen Sink Challenge, it's going to be fun! :)
Supplies:
Cardstock- (Recollections) aqua
Stamps- (PTI) polka dot basics II, mega mixed messages
Ink- (VersaMagic) white, (StazOn) jet black
Other- (Wright's) trim, (WalMart) fabric, Button from stash
Have a Blessed night!

Oh super cute card and flower. I remember all of those cheer competitions back in the day! And I also remember not having my back handspring yet. I think it was a fear thing for me, and now I look back and hate that I was so afraid about it!

P.S. We did blow dry Maddie last night... I'm not sure she liked it though :(
