Awwwh - goodbye Olympics!!

Do you know, it's been fantastic in London the last couple of weeks, the Olympics have been fantastic and the closing ceremony last night was awesome!!  So it seems rather fitting that my card today for the new challenge at Sketch N Stash is Olympic themed - and it's my sketch for this challenge!!
I've used this perfect Mo Manning image, Slam Dunk, for the challenge and as the card was for my BIL who had tickets for the Olympic basket ball sessions, it seemed doubly apt! 
The papers are Papermania Portabello Road and the Union Jack ribbon is also from that range.  
Just about the oldest item from my stash is the metal embellie below which is the nearest thing I had to a medal!!

Just a side view  to show all the layers!

Our sponsor for this challenge is:

My Mums Craft shop
with a gold medal-winning £10 voucher to spend with them!
My fabby teamies at SNS have created some awesome cards from my sketch, so check them out here! Our new boss, Daniele has also asked me to tell you a bit about myself so you can check that out too!!
Roll on the Paralympics now!!

Hi Julie, I couldn't agree more, I thoroughly enjoyed the games and I feel really sad they're finished. Yes, the closing ceremony was fantastic, I was glued to it until the end.

Love your card, it couldn't be more fitting! Love your colouring, the image and the sketch you designed.

Love, Chris x

The 'Lympics certainly were awesome...shame it's all over, hopefully the paralympics will be just as amazing. Brilliant card, although I expect nothing less!
May the force be with you. :-)
