FIELD OF DREAMS - PLAY BALL

This little guy is ready to play ball. He is a Penny Black stamp that I have had for a while, but never got around to using. Since it is summer, this is perfect for some of the various challenges I want to enter. It is being entered in Simon Says, Whimsy Stamps, Creative Inspirations, Cafe Mojo, One Stop, Allsorts, Creative Card Crew , Just Magnolia and Penny Black. As usual, it always takes me forever to decide on paper. I finally decided on Close To My Heart with all the male colors. The colors are so bright, cheery, and look like summer.
The image is heat embossed and then colored with the gamsol technique. The clouds were airbrushed. The green background paper on the side of the card has been dry embossed.
There is a lot of stitching on the inside of this card, as well, as the front.
Thank you for looking and please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
