Open Minded Baseball Birthday Wish

 Welcome! I'm so glad your here to check out my newest Design Team creation for the Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenge Blog. I'm so thrilled to have the opportunity to craft with a fabulous digital stamp byDigi Darla. Our challenge this time is to use some buttons.

This is my take on the challenge...
I used some of my Cricut cartridges for the baseball theme elements. I distressed the pattern paper and used some faux stitching. The image had an old fashion feel so I chose to color it in sepia tones and just keep the embellishments in nuetrals as well.
Here's a closeup of my layers.

Although this card uses faux stitching you can find tips and strategies on how to add stitching to your cards here. You can also find more tutorials on my tutorial tab here.
