Showered with Love Card and a Little Baseball, too!

Hello Delightful friends and family,

Hope this finds you all well.  Sure glad I was able to stay in and have a day off from watching the little ones play baseball.  Not that I mind going to their games at all but it is so windy and cold even though it looks like such a nice day with the sun shining so brightly!  Thankful I had a blanket in the car to take to the game on Tuesday evening.  Brrrr!
(I do have a card to share but had to share the grandkids playing ball first! )

Even Princess Riley (age 7) had a jacket on over her uniform.  
All ready at 3rd base!

 Princess Addy is ready at 2nd base! To be honest the picture before this one she was playing in the dirt.  

Jakob (age 8) all ready to hit the ball (and he did!)

Here is the card (finally!): 

I made this for my daughter-in-law who needed a card for a baby shower she was attending.

I've used the Taylored Expressions Hello Baby Stamp & die combo. I love all the little elements for the "mobile" each is a die included with the set. I've added Glossy Accents to each of them.   I stamped the pink cloud with Versamark Ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder.  The sentiment and stitched lines were stamped with Avery Elle pigment ink (Raspberry) and then heat embossed with the clear embossing powder (Wow! ...that's the brand but it is pretty incredible!!!).  I love the stitched scallop border from Lawn Fawn and I've used the Echo Park Dots and Stripes 6x6 pad and the Bundle of Joy - A New Addition Girl 6x6 paper pad.
I almost forgot the cloudy background, I used Distress Ink (Salty Ocean) and with the Rolling Clouds Build A Scene die (Taylored Expressions) I cut a template and used it to make the clouds, it's really faint but it's there!  
I will be sharing this at Word Art Wednesday #180 Anything Goes 

Thanks for visiting, enjoy the rest of your week!
