Basketball Birthday

Hi there 🙂 It’s time for a brand new ATG challenge over at Creative Fingers! Our fabulous sponsor this time is Conie Fong. Along with providing everyone with a code for a 25% discount code to her store (CREATIVEFINGERSOCT), Conie has given the DT images to work with, and my choice is the adorable Basketball Benny! I colored Benny up with my Copics, then cut the image out with a stitched die.

I have a sports themed paper pad that provided the perfect choice for papers for this image. I used 3 of the different designs – the basketball print for the background, an orange print for the diagonal strip, and a grassy green for the big stitched banner. I layered it all up, backing the orange strip with a black mat that I’d edged with some edging scissors (!!!). The paper collection also came with a bunch of die cut images, and I chose an assortment to pop onto the card, using foam dots for some dimension with a few of them. I used another stitched banner die to cut out the simple stamped sentiment. Everything was matted in black before being attached to the card base. I hope you can join us in our challenge, and please be sure to visit Conie Fong at her Facebook group to see more fantastic makes to give you inspiration to enter the challenge there!!
