Hoping Your Birthday is a Grand Slam (CASE Study DT Entry)

 
 Hello there, I love seeing the amazing creations for the CASE Study Challenge each week and welcome the opportunity to play along!  It's so cool to see how we all interpret each other's work...so I thought I would take the opportunity to try out for the CASE Study DT.  I immediately went to work looking through Moe's blog.  Moe has such amazing talent!  Her ability to mix/match patterned papers, add embellishments and the absolutely perfect sentiment is incredible.  At first, I was going to CASE this card with all of these gorgeous flowers, but I make a cards with flowers, so I kept looking through her gorgeous creations and came across this card. It was the perfect opportunity to use my new PTI Seventh Inning Stretch set and matching dies.  You can tell that I took the inspiration from Moe's layout.  Instead of the circles for curling, I created a baseball diamond. Also, instead of the bow, I used a touch of twine.
Here's Moe's inspiration card up close and personal!  It's it absolutely fabulous?

And since my card has a baseball theme, I couldn't help but share pictures of baseball from this weekend!  Starting in the top left...could Marcel be any cuter?  I love the eye black underneath his eyes (one of his teammates brought it).  They look very professional.  I have to say Marcel is terrified of batting.  We're working on it!  Next up is Collin...he is so tiny but he is very confident at the plate.  He took last year off and is enjoying baseball a lot more this year.  And the pictures of Jonathon...you can see where he gets the nickname "Slim Shady".  He's so skinny and has hit a bit of a growth spurt.  He's pitching for the first time this year.  Pretty exciting...and I'm sure these will be the first of many photos.  Ryan isn't playing this year (he's all in for show choir and drama)...but he and Jonathon are both umpiring so I'm sure I'll snap a few pictures of him at the field too!
