Rhea created a beautiful Good ol' Sport card that we just couldn't wait to share! So perfect to see how this collection can be used for so many projects.

"This card was inspired by the lovely imagery and quotation on this paper. Graphic 45 makes it so easy
to create projects because of their innovative designs. I simply chose my sentiment and matted it a few
times in complementary colors. Embellishments were added to create dimension and depth. I may
have over did it a bit in the way of decoration, but sometimes it is fun to get carried away. Notice how
my elements appear in odd numbers, it is a simple trick that will always add interest to your design. Cheers!" - Rhea
