Play Ball!

My husband LOVES baseball, he plays in an over 55 league.  So, each year I like to create a Birthday card for him with a Baseball theme. So, here is his 2018 card:
 I used stamps from Technique Junkies, I stamped this baseball background stamp in (SU) Gray, and used the TH stamping platform- to get a nice crisp image,  The glove and sentiment are both stamped in Black Tuxedo Memento. I added just a pop of red and -perfect card for him- he loved it!

 Last year in November, he broke his ankle sliding into home, so has been working soooo hard with Physical therapy and working out to get back and play ball!  Crossing my fingers and toes for him!

Fabulous card and I'm sure he loved it. I like how the background paper is muted and the way you designed this, the whole card looks very retro and vintage. And gorgeous.
