Bouncing Ball DP

Today I have a card I made after my "Sporty Accessories" set arrived. Sports themed papers in just the sports you want can be tough to find, but you can easily create your own background papers with the different elements in this set. I lined up the three large balls on an acrylic gridline block and stamped them on a diagonal on this Soft Sand CS. Then I shifted the block each time I started a new row so the balls would nest together and the same ones wouldn't be right next to each other, until my mat was complete.
Next I rubbed my ink pad directly onto the cardstock to dirty it up and give the card the appearanc of texture.

Last I matted it onto the Black Onyx and Soft Sand base and added a popped up stamped jersey with the word "Fan" from "Just So Sporty"set. Isn't adding the ball to the shirt fun for a soccer fan?

A very simple "kid" or "guy" card! :) Happy Tuesday, thanks for stopping by!
