Diva Challenge: GO TEAM USA!

This week's challenge over on the Diva's site was provided by guest challenger, Rho Densmore.  The challenge is to use the Olympic Rings in a design.  For whatever reason, this was a difficult challenge for me so I decided to make it more difficult by using tangles that I have rarely or never used before. In for a penny, in for a pound I say!  The result was a design with more substance than style, I'm afraid, but I still had fun.  All of the patterns I used behind the rings begin with the letter U, S, or A.
 Go Team USA! Bring us home some Olympic Gold!

You can draw circles very well, mine didn't come out quite as round ...

Very cool-I feel the movement of your tangles-love the rings and how they stand out from the background.

I love all of the action in this! The U.S.A. idea was very creative!

Wow! this is fabulous. I love all the designs and the way you labeled them. Some I have not seen some of them before. I especially like the way that Stircircles,Squish and Unagi curve out of the page.

You are my mentor and hero, you know. Just wish we could get together and tangle quietly sometime and share the mojo. Beautiful job!
