Play Ball with Power Poppy

 

Hello my creative friends!!!  I have a patriotic, sporty, Power Poppy Birthday card to share with y'all today!  Julie, appropriately so, chose red/white/blue colors for the Hues to Use challenge this week, and I thought, a baseball card would fit perfectly with those colors since, in my humble opinion, baseball is America's sport.    I know some may disagree, but that's how I feel ;)  Mainly because I love baseball.

I took Power Poppy's Play Ball stamp set and stamped the equipment collage five times just so I could color and cut out the top baseball bat and one of the balls for my grouping.  

For the fence, I just took Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and ran it lightly over white cardstock until I achieved the look I was going for.  I then cut it into strips, trimmed off the corners and lined the strips up. 


For the inside, I added some scrap pieces of the dp I used on the front, as well as a stamped banner (I stamped the image on red and blue cardstock and adhered the cut blue piece to the red banner.  I also used my Misti to make sure I was able to line up the sentiment perfectly inside.

Oh, Tosh, what a fabulous masculine card! I love it and totally agree that baseball is America's sport! Hehe! I absolutely love it myself...played softball and even coached it too. What an amazing card with all the pieces of equipment you've colored and fussy cut (a gal after my own heart...). And I love the layout with the DP and distressing...and what a cool fence. Love this card! Hugs, sweet friend...keep cool and enjoy the weekend!
