This is my entry in the CAS fall DT search. We are challenged to use colors from our favorite team. I have been a fan of the Washington Redskins since Sonny Jurgensen was traded to them from the Eagles. I met Sonny when our family went to Eagles training camp. Sonny agreed to a photo with my 3 siblings and I. My strawberry blond hair is the same color as Sonny's, so as my sibs stood on the ground, Sonny scooped me up and held me while my mom took a couple of shots. I was five at the time...and have been a Sonny fan ever since. Each year we travel to a different NFL stadium to see the Skins play. Hail to the Redskins!!
My burgundy and gold card features a simple quilled flower and a DCWV sticker sentiment. Punched the sticker to match the burgundy punch, added scoring along the burgundy panel. PT 2

Great card! I love the quilling. My DIL is a big Redskins fan. I was a fan of Sonny Jurgenson when he was the QB for the Eagles. I grew up in PA and was a fan of both the Eagles and the Phillies! I still root for the Eagles (except when they play the Dolphins).

I'm a Redskin fan too!!! I grew up in the DC area and my family has always neen fans. I remember Sonny Jerguson as well (he does the radio commentary of the Skins' games now) but I go all the way back to Billy Kilmer who was the quarterback when I was a little tyke. My mom brought home signed posters of Billy Kilmer and Charlie Taylor for us kids. I recognized your colors right off in the gallery---I really like that you used quilling on your design :) P.S. Are you excited about RG III?
