CAS One layer thanks

Hi everyone! The challenge over at Less is More is to make a one layer card that goes off the edge. Well, here is what I did with it!

I just got the new Power Poppy set called Play Ball and just had to play with the baseball stitches. They are stamped in wild cherry pigment ink. I used the thanks sentiment that is included in the set and stamped it in blue from Colorbox.

I also had to dirty up the ball with a little bit of distressing in the right hand corner. I don't know about you, but our softballs and baseballs had dirt and marks all over them growing up. Nothing like the sound of a wooden bat as it cracked the ball.

I'm also entering this into the Paper Players 200 celebration challenge and chose to do a one layer card, which was challenge #142.

Thanks for stopping by!
