Happy Father's Day--FMS 291

June 11, 2017

I am playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I haven't had much time to enter any challenges lately, so I am excited to play along with Jen B. and the talented team at FMS!

I needed Father's Day cards for my sons, and this was the perfect sketch.  Both of my boys love baseball and are Daddy's now, so I am making this card twice.  It was so simple and came together quickly.  I picked red, white and blue because nothing is more American than baseball!

My card is created on a white card base.  It doesn't look very white in my pictures.  Sorry!  I added a red base behind the red, white and blue patterned paper.  I stamped "Happy Father's Day" in Memento black ink using the Your Next Stamp For The Boys stamp set.   The little baseball player was stamped is black ink.  He is from the Your Next Stamp Sports Fanatics 2 stamp set.  I stamped the ball again in Real Red ink and fussy cut the stitching to add to the ball man.  I colored him with Copic Markers and added wiggley eyes for fun.  

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have a great day!
