Congratulation All-Star

A big CONGRATULATIONS goes out to my Nephew for making his All-Star team!!!

Using a sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Here is my card...

Stampin' Up Hugs & Wishes, Established Elegance and Good Sport stamp sets
Close to my Heart canvas badge buttons
Stampin' Up Summer Sun and Whisper White cardstock
Yellow pattern paper from Stampin' Up design paper
Black papers from Creative Memories black & white mat pack
Stampin' Up Basic Black ink pad
Versa mark pad and black embossing powder
adhesive and pop dots

I placed all of the papers as the sketch shows, embossing on the top yellow square.
I stamped the crown then masked it and stamped the baseball image, fussy cutting both out and popping up in the middle of the card.  I finished by stamping the baseball on the two canvas buttons and adhering them to the corners.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
