Reds Fan Birthday

Grandson Carter turned 5 this week.  This amazing little man can tell you the full name of every Cincinnati Reds player, his number, and position.  So of course his birthday was baseball themed! This is one of the three cards I made - the other two were given to him by Uncle Eric and Great-Grandma (Oma).

The baseball player was a Fiskar's "Batter Up" stamp and the baseball was a brad.  Both were popped up onto the designer paper, as was the "Happy Birthday".  The bottom DP is from Stampin Up's Celebrations pack and the top is from a Christmas pack I've had for a while and can't remember the name of.  The cardstock and ink is Riding Hood Red from SU.  The white cardstock is from Walmart, with the center stripe having been run through the crimper.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafts and Me Challenge 47 - Make it Count
Craft Your Days Away Challenge 26 - Birthdays
Birthday Sundaes  Challenge 21 - Birthday Card
Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 61 - Birthday
A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 162 - Happy Birthday
Divas by Design Challenge 8 - Birthday
