Riley Design Challenge!

Hi Riley Fans! 
Hope you're all ready for today's challenge, and I'm proud to say that I'M hosting it!!!
My challenge is a School/Team Spirit sort of theme. Basically, to celebrate the start of school, the football and hockey season, or post season baseball...make something that shows spirit for either a school or Sport team ie: (your alma mater, kid's high school, using your favorite sports team colors/Riley sport stamps, etc) 

For my card I decided to use Hockey Riley since the season is just right around the corner!
I keep in touch with several of my former players and this was a card I made for Freddy who played for the minor league team I interned for a couple years back.

So this was a birthday-ish card for him, but really its a "just because" card, and boy was I excited to use my Riley Hockey Stamp!  I based the colors off of the Ontario Reign colors, and colored his jersey in to look like their orange ones.  He's number 12 so I cut those out using the Sure Cuts A Lot Software.  The dark blue background was cuttlebugged using the argyle folder, and the card was triple matted (the Riley one was popped up).  Riley was colored in with Copics, his skates were colored in with my Sakura gelly roll silver pen, and the ice got a little bit of Stickle treatment!  I added a couple brads, because what's more manlier than brads?!

On the back, I added the Ontario Reign logo using Sure Cuts A Lot to cut out a picture I found online. I have to admit, I was pretty proud of how well it came out compared to the real logo.
Sorry for the blurry image!  I guess I just wanted to make mine look better ;)
