Take Me Out to the Ball Game! Sports and Ribbon Challenge for RRR
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! Is it really already the middle of September? I feel like the days are just disappearing! How about you? I can’t believe it’s time for another great challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon. Challenge #103 is all about Sports and ribbon, so I dug out my Graphic 45 Good Ole’ Sport papers and some beautiful ribbon from RRR to make my Take Me Out to the Ball Game birthday card.
I put down a layer of Navy Blue Sheer Organza with a Satin Center to anchor the base of my card. Then I topped it with a second layer of Navy Blue Stars on White Grosgrain to go with the star images in the paper and embellishments. I stamped the happy birthday directly onto the card front and embossed with clear embossing powder. I added just a touch of Natural Jute String beneath the baseball button on my rosette. It’s a pretty simple card layout, and came together in about 20 minutes. No kidding!
If you are wondering about the torn edge on the base of the card, I’ll tell you a little secret. I was making this up at the last minute for a big family birthday party. So I was in a hurry. And I glued my card front UPSIDE DOWN onto my card base. For a moment, I despaired…then I thought, just tear it, make another card base and put it on the right way. So that is what I did, and I actually like the torn edge on the front of the card. But shhhhh…don’t tell! It’s just our little secret!
Link your Sports and Ribbon themed project up to the RRR BLOG before the end of September. Can’t wait to see what you make for this great challenge! Thanks for stopping by!
