FMS541 Home Run

Happy Friday, everyone!  Phew, glad to see the weekend here!  My SIL asked me to make a graduation card for her baseball-playing nephew and I was thrilled to be able to use up some of the last bits of my Hey Sports Fan DSP! I used the FMS sketch:

And here we go:

His school colors are blue and gold, so that big gold starburst was a great start for the background.  I added a starry panel flanked by a couple of diecut strips to mimic the stitching on a baseball, then added the center panel along with the "home run" ticket and sentiment banner:

And just for fun, I stamped and fussy-cut some baseball images from an old set called Have a Ball, along with some sentiments from Charming Sentiments:

Hope he likes it!  And Cassidy happened to use this set last week when she made a card for her basketball-loving friend's 12th birthday:

Thanks for visiting today!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

You both scored big time! I just love that dsp on your card, LeAnne, and the baseball stitching!
Was it Cassidy's idea to use the wood grain? It was a must-have for her basketball court!

This is the perfect graduation card for a baseball loving kid! I love the home run ticket and the background paper! Cassidy has made a fantastic card as well! Following in her grandma's footsteps! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Two awesome cards for those hard to make for young men! Love the sports themes and the background papers work perfectly for both cards!

I love this, LeAnne! Love how you turned this into a fun graduation card and added all the baseball things! The recipient is sure to love this! And Miss Cassidy's card is awesome as well! Have A Ball is one of my favorite sports sets! Have a great weekend!

These are both fabulous cards! I love the idea of using the Hey Sports Fan suite for graduation cards. So good to see you in the FMS gallery, LeAnne!
