For The Win Birthday Card!

Tomorrow is my nephew's birthday, and this is the card that is on it's way to him! He's turning 13 and loves baseball. I'm sure this will be a different birthday, not being able to be out and playing baseball. But I still wanted to make a card with something he really likes.

I used the main catalog card idea (on page 59) for inspiration in making the card. I just changed colors and made it all baseballs!

I did fussy cut the win banner and MVP pieces - but I love the POP! that they both give to the card! And the little line of black in between the Balmy Blue and Pacific Point layers, it's Black Satin Ribbon. I like how it creates a distinct separation between the layers, and also uses ribbon on a 'boy card'! ;)

And here's the inside! So, ya, maybe the saying, "it's game day" might not be the most accurate sentiment, but hopefully he'll make it fun even if it's not an outside ball-playing game day!

Thanks for stopping by,
