Baseball Anyone??

My BFF asked me to make a card with a baseball theme that she was going to give to her grandson's baseball coach to thank him for his hard work with all the kids. Their team is called the "cougars" and their colors are green and grey. I used a SNSS cocoa's baseball hat digi image and colored it with green and gray Copics, adding an argyle embossed panel in green galore and some gray DP from the MM wedding stack. I added a black mat punched with a SU! spiral punch and a punched tag with 2 mini brads and a little baseball I hand drew and coated with glossy accents. The letter "C" on the hat was done with my Quickutz.
That's it for now, but I might be back with more later today :)

How adorable, Carol, love the shades of green and grey on the hat. Nice job on the handmade baseball. All around nice card. I'm headed outside to help hubby (enlarging our deck) and then I'll be back in this afternoon. I'll look forward to seeing more of your arts of work.

Carol this is so cute. What a great card. And so neat, that it is so personaled with the colors of the team.

Perfect for thanking the coach for all the hard work. Don't you just love that spiral punch? I'm going to try to use mine more. Adorable card!
