Johnny All Star


Tomorrow Trey has a birthday party to go to for a little friend of ours. They both share the love of baseball. Johnny is on Trey's baseball team. They quickly became friends over the spring playing t-ball. They both have a love for Star Wars too, and that's the theme of the party. So, I knew I either needed to make a Star Wars card, or a baseball card. After seeing a challenge on Our Creative Corner for Stars and Stripes, it made it a baseball card! From there I did the layout challenge off Taylored Expressions. (I saw they had a new release out, such cute, fun, Halloween stamps! Gonna have to get some!) I had thought baseball bats would have gone perfectly where my cardstock stripes are, but naturally, when I debated the SU baseball set, and the Surf's Up set, I got Surf's up! Doesn't that always happen? So, I dug thru my scrapbook stickers, to find star stickers, but no bats. My center image is from TAC's new set called Summer Boys. My sentiment behind the image is from SU's All Stars set. I colored him in with copics.

Other supplies: nesties, DCWV cardstock, and paper, SU night of navy ink.

I think Johnny is going to love this card! I love the way you have this little guy colored and it looks like you have popped up his cap too. It's a terrific take on this week's stars and strips challenge. Thanks for joining us with this week's OCC challegne.
