Bringing Back Simple!

It's time for another birthday card - this one is for my son. He'll be turning 12 in two more hours, yikes! I follow former Angel Jennifer Carter's blog - she has a great, clean style and this week she featured some terrific sports cards. They really inpsired me. Every year I use this retired set from The Angel Company for my little guy, so it's important to change the layout. The baseball is popped out on a pop dot!

Card Materials: all stamps from The Angel Company
Stamps: All Season Athlete, Ordinary Greetings
Accessories: DCWV Pet stack, pop dot

Regarding my last post: You know how some folks post "removed for publication", I thought I'd post "removed for ugliness!" I asked the ladies in my hostess club for their honest and brutal opinion of my card. They all agreed that it was better in person, mainly because you could not see that the flowers were clear embossed so that you could see the text and colors through the images. Here's one more go at a better photo.

Here's hoping you have a great weekend! I got some new stamps from the May/June Jubilation that I plan to cut and play with - crossing my fingers for some "free" time!

What a great tradition to use the same stamp set each year for your son's birthday card. Those kids do grow up way too fast though!!

Love the card you made for your son!! I think your other card is beautiful! It is hard to get good photos, I struggle with them all the time, cards are so much better in person. Hope your having a great weekend!
