Shape Up!

Although I really should be talking about a new shape up plan for myself, it's really the name of this Monday's CCEE challenge. Our hostess, Tosh, wanted us to make a round card. And of course, the first thing I thought of was a baseball. I used one of those wonderful distressed papers from Basic Grey for the ball. I think it captures the look of an old scuffed baseball. Then I just grabbed one of the many baseballs we have around the house and studied it. I drew the curved lines with a thin tipped black marker and added the stitches with a red sharpie. The bench was stamped on a woodgrained paper, also Basic Grey.

Recipe: stamps- Put Me In Coach (Storage Units, Inks and More); paper- Basic Grey, white; ink- black archival; accessories- SU markers, red sharpie, white gel pen (for coloring popcorn).

Deb, I think this card is just fabulous. Love the format for the baseball theme. We are a baseball and softball family so I really appreciate the concept. Great use of the papers and the image. Basic Grey is my favorite DP I think.
