Getting Ready For The Olympics

So we managed to get a few tickets for the Olympics, Syncronised Swimming and Ladies Road Race on Box Hill.  Looking forward to both!  So with the Olympic games due to start any time soon the theme for the "Tanda Teaser" is summer sports.
For my card I came up with a folded pop-up card. I used Tanda stamps, watercolour paints and distress inks. I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

"Craft Room Challenge - sports" Just have to support this Tanda sponsored challenge
"Shopping our stash - extra fold or pleats"
"Top tip tuesday - for men"
"Creative Mondays - For Men"
"Make it monday - anything goes"
"Here come the boys - tag on a card"
"Catch the bug- anything goes"

I love the outdoor feel you've captured on this card. The grass detail is fantstic and the fold of the card really brings it all together wonderfully. Excellent masculine card.
