The Paper Players 410 - Design Team Card

Welcome to this week's challenge at The Paper Players. Claire has a sports theme for us to play with. Of course, this is also Clean and Simple week so we have to keep the style in mind too: lots of white space, minimal layers, minimal embellishments and an uncluttered design.

I really like the Enjoy Life set which includes this great image of a cyclist. Here he is, cycling his way into a new day full of new adventures and new ideas. 

I sponged the lower part of the panel with Grapefruit Grove and Pineapple Punch before stamping in the grass and the cyclist. I added a little strip of Grapefruit Grove DSP to one side and stamped the sentiment in sections and punched them out like little sign posts.

We'd love to see what you do with the sports theme and how your CAS creations turn out.
