Check Mate...

My "Check Mate" card is inspired by this week's challenge at Runway Inspired Blog spot and this week's Pinspired Challenge :) 

In making this card I am inspired by the colors in Runway challenged and by the words like BOLD & CONFIDENT displayed in Pinspired challenge. So to combine both these challenges I thought about the game chess where one player WINS over the other by Checkmate :). Hence, the color scheme and the sentiment showcase the two challenges.

I made the chess board by cutting a 3X3" White cardstock, then drew the grid lines and colored with by Sharpie Black marker to create a chess board. I then hand drew and cut the kings used in chess, stuck them with foam dots and finally added the sentiment :)

I want to play this card for -

1. Pinspired Challenge #4
