Baseball Birdie Father's Day Card

Hello! This afternoon I made this Baseball Birdie Father's Day Card for my Dad. He loves baseball and the image from Doodle Pantry was too cute to pass up. I'm going to pretend this little birdie plays for the Oklahoma RedHawks minor league baseball team. We have many fond memories as a family attending baseball games together. So, it just made sense to make my Dad a baseball themed Father's Day card. To create this card the baseballs were cut from patterned paper by The Paper Studio and backed with black card stock. I played around with the placement but with the size of the baseballs there wasn't many likeable options. I inked around the edges of the background paper with a French blue chalk ink and used a sentiment stamp by Hero Arts. That's about it! Thanks for stopping by!

My Baseball Birdie Father's Day Card is entered into the following challenges:

Here is the sentiment I created for the inside of the card:

 
Baseball is a little like being a father, it's the small things over the course of the game that make a big difference. If you add up all the small things you've done for me over the years then you would win the World Series.
 
Happy Father's Day!
