August Dueling Darlings!

Hello!  I'm a bit late as this post was due on the 15th...but being late with my card has nothing to do with the kit - it was fantastic!

Our hostess this month is Debbie and she sent us the following items:
Penny Black's image called "Gymnast Mimi"  (oh my she's so cute!)
Designer Papers:
"Cheerleading Star Field" by Scrapbook Customs and
"Everything Gymnastics" by Karen Foster
Embellishments:
Blue twine from K & Co.
White twine from Stampin Up!
Red & White twine from Michael's
Gold & Silver Cords from Stampin Up!
Star Brads from Stampin Up!

Here is my card:

Hmmm...my photos look a little dark...but that's a gold foil card stock behind the image and the star banner!  I used one of the Star Brads on the banner, and two of the shiny gold brads on the bottom (which Debbie also included in the kit).

Here's a closer look at Mimi.  I used Wink of Stella on her outfit and hair ribbon to give her some sparkle.  
We were also asked to share our favorite Olympic event.  That's easy!  It's gymnastics.  Wait, it's diving.  Oh, but what about the swimming, volleyball, hurdles, pole vaulting, running...  <grin> yes, I love it all!!

Debbie,  thank you for giving us a great theme and a really great kit!!

Darlene, I love your Olympic themed card. This gymnast image is so cute and you've colored her beautifully. Love how you mounted the image on that gorgeous gold scalloped panel and the lovely papers too!
