Play ball!

WOW there's a brand new promo set available with purchase over at Create with TLC that you will totally want to grab this week!  It's totally perfect for those masculine cards of the men in your lives.

And what's absolutely fabulous is that it's free with purchase even if they are not big ones... and there are so many wonderful things over at the store that there's no reason that you should miss this promo set.

I just had a fabulous time playing with it.  I used some of the DP as well as a sentiment, a tag and an image!  How fun right?!?

Here's the look of the card.  I distressed the edges to make it more vintage.
Don't forget the read more for the rest of the great image of this card!!!!

I had some awesome embellishments that I had purchased while on vacation for 1$ and that were just perfect for this.  I also used a little envelop from the stuff that Beth had sold to me back this spring.  I used that envelop to put the tag.  I wanted to use some rope for the tag... but to no avail... don't know where it went but I'm missing a whole jar of stuff... it is missing from the renos in my studio due to the leak...  Anyway, I used some raffia instead.

Here's a look with the tag out.  I fussy cut it out.

And here's a look at the digi and sentiment.  I added some vintage photo distress ink around the digi.  I stitched a bit on the envelop with a black pen
And a closer look at the tag
To make this card I followed this sketch:
