Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge!

I love weekends that allow me to get some stamping time in! There are so many wonderful challenges out there to participate in.

This weekend, I was able to do Sharon's "Pretties" Challenge, Trudee's Inspiration Challenge, and now this is Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge! I was in need of a birthday card for a little family friend that loves baseball. Knowing that the only baseball stamp I own is from Stampin' Up's Toy Box (retired) set, I knew Beate's sketch would be the perfect layout for my card. The 4"x9" card base is made from Night of Navy. The Creamy Caramel strip has stars (same set) stamped in Moonlight White Brilliance Ink. I used a 1/2" punch for the navy circles and added some red brads from Making Memories. Some natural colored hemp was wrapped around the Real Red panel and then I attached my sentiment (Hero Arts) to the hemp.

This card was made for a little boy, but I can certainly see myself giving this to one of the adult baseball fans in my life. Have a very happy Monday! So glad that you could stop by...Toodles! :D

Very cute! Maybe I should re-think selling off my Toy Box set! Geesh!
