Basketball Congratulations Card

Hi everyone

Today I have a card to share with you, that I made to enter into this weeks Simon Says Stamp challenge. This weeks theme is Sporty and/or Patriotic, and I chose to work with the sporty theme =)

Here's my card:

I used all Paper Smooches stamps for this card. I stamped a circle once to create the ball, and twice again overtop to create the circular seams. I also added a straight line in the middle, and colored the ball orange. I stamped the one hand from "Helping Hands" onto white paper, cut it out, and stamped the second corresponding hand onto the back side. I then colored it in front and back with skin tone copics, folded the fingers down, and adhered them together. I adhered the ball, hand and sentiment onto the card using foam adhesive.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today =)

Wow, what cool card!!! Very masculine, too! I have a hard time keeping my cards on the masculine side--I'm too girly! HA! But seriously, I'm going to use this sketch to create some of my masculine cards. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work with us!!
