Take Me Out to the Ballgame

May 21, 2020 Update: 

Certain members of our family are baseball fans, which led me to create this card. I used this paper collection once before and the scraps have been around for a long time. I was inspired by Tictactoe Challenge #064, selecting the top left to right diagonal row - Sport, Patterned Paper & Punched Shape. This challenge is weekly, beginning every Thursday.
I adhered a few panels of baseball-themed paper to a panel of red cardstock. I had a scrap of paper with a cluster of baseballs and stars so merely used a 2" circle punch. This was adhered with foam tape for dimension, followed by the sentiment, which was cut from the patterned paper. The sentiment was backed with a red cardstock banner. A few punched stars were added to the upper right corner. The completed card front was added to an off-white card base. The inside was decorated with a scrap of coordinating paper and three punched stars.
This isn't exactly CAS but it was definitely quick and easy. I hope to play along with this challenge more often since discovering it. Be sure to visit the TTTC064 Blog for challenge fun!
