You're in a League of your Own 

{DT Project Lady Anne's Paper Crafts: Challenge #2 - Friday Sentiments}

Our theme for the next fortnight Challenge over at Lady Anne's Paper Crafts' Bi-weekly Friday Sentiments Challenge is Sports with a twist to add brads (but always have a sentiment).  How much easier can you get.  So I really hope you will play along.

The cute little sporty girls are digis I won with a challenge entry over at Chalk N Stock and they are from Digi Darla Designs.   Here is a link on my blog to the tutorial for the circle embellishments which are made with circle punch-outs.

Its a centre step card design. The sentiment I created in MS Word with a circle text box.  The design papers were from Art from the Heart and BasicGrey.  I have used H2O's for the images and dry chalks on the circle sentiment. Okay, you girls probably already spotted the 'oops' on this card design.  Hope to hear from you if you spotted the obvious mistake. (HINT:  re this specific challenge requirements ...).  Hope the Design Team will forgive me.
