NFL Happily Ever Challenged

Ted offered up another challenge this month. This time, we are to make a Valentine card using colors from an NFL team (minus any that have traditional valentine's colors ie. Buccaneers or Cardinals). I immediately had an idea, but it's taken me awhile to have time to do it!

DH and I love the Steelers, so it's only natural that I would pick them as my inspiration piece.

I *knew* I had to use the word "Steelers" in some way since it is a Valentine, after all! And those little diamonds on the logo? Let me tell you how hard it was for me to draw those! I finally wound up taking a thin piece of paper and holding it up to my monitor and tracing a logo I found online! LOL Whatever, works, right?

If you notice, I used the jersey as my inspiration piece. Unfortunately, I didn't have any light grey for the back of the logo, so I wound up using Smokey Shadow. You can tell the difference in person that it's not black.

Thanks for the challenge, Ted!

Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Paper - True Black, White, Smokey Shadow, Random Yellow from Michael's
Other - 2" and 1.75" circle punch, Crayola Pencils

Liz, this turned out great! Seems like the Steelers are quite popular! :) You're dedicated enough to draw the little diamonds, you're okay in my book! :) Thanks for taking part of my challenge.
