Creative Knockouts New Challenge - Theme: "Outdoor Fun"

Hello Blogland,

Today over at "The Creative Knockouts" Challenge blog we have a new challenge starting with the theme "Outdoor Fun". Our sponsor this week is Dr. Digi House of Stamps and I have chosen an image called "Gridiron Greg" and it reminds me of my, soon to be, son in law. My daughter has been dating him for more than 5 years and they plan to marry after she graduates from nursing school. My son in law is a huge Florida Gators football fan so as soon as I saw this image I knew almost immediately who the card would be made for. I had fun trying to color him up to look like a "Florida Gator" and I am sure he will just love this surprise.

 This card started out as a very simple card and when I began die cutting the shapes my imagination ran away with it and I really like the way it turned out. I chose the Stampin Up! image "Wish Big" from the "Word Play" stamp set because it fit both the image as well as my son in laws personality. He recently landed a job making an amazing salary and we are very proud of him.
