Play Ball!


I have a red, white, and blue card which is perfect for the July 4th holiday weekend here in the US. I used this cute House Mouse image, and colored him with Copics, then used SB square dies to cut the image panel out and mat with Navy. The background was done with a Stampendous square illusion background stamp with red ink on white cardstock. I added a Simon Says Stamp sentiment done in navy on white, and followed up with some random red, white, and blue stars. The red card base was cut with a Lil Inker stitched rectangle die.

I'm sharing this with the House-Mouse & Friends HMFMC#222 challenge which is "A day spent with friends." What's better than friends going to enjoy a good-old American baseball game?

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a great, safe weekend!

Well what can be more American than this card Carol?!! I love it!! The little House Mouse image is just as darling as he can be, love that geometric red background, that is very cool and I am so loving that stamp! The sentiment and stars finish this card off perfectly. Hugs, Brenda
