Cricut Tennis Layout

I've intended to participate in one of Emma's Throwback Thursday challenges for months now (www.CreativeTimeForMe.com), but never seemed to have a good idea in time for the deadline.  Well this week's challenge was all about sports - use the Cricut Sports Mania cartridge on a project.  Hello! That is right up my alley living in this locker room!  So here is what I created (note that my scanner cuts off a bit of the bottom edge and adds a shadow because it is not a full 12", but you get the idea!):

Of course I couldn't participate in one of Emma's challenges without using my Gypsy, so I used it to create and weld the title and border.  The Tennis Racquet and Tennis Ball border are from the Sports Mania Cartridge and the font is from Plantin Schoolbook.  The background paper is Jillibean Soup and the yellow is Bo Bunny Double Dot in buttercup.  Thanks to Emma for the inspiration and challenge!  Happy Crafting Everyone!
