Baseball Girl

Over at Outlawz Twisted Thursday our optional challenge theme or twist this week is "Easter or Spring" . Our sponsor for April is Besties Designs.



I used a digi from our sponsor and made a springlike scene for this baseball playing girl.
I used my Go Kreate dies to make the card base. The papers are a mix of Prima and Maja Designs. I cut 3  trees using my Marianne die, it's a mix of stripes, spots and kraft, and I added a cut out April calendar board. Then I added my fussy cut image on top. The flowers got decorated with bling and I used two butterflies from Prima. Something that's typical for me is that I forget to plan for a sentiment, and I felt my card lacked something, so I used a Die-namics sentiment die and craft foam for my sentiment.


This card is also for these challenges:
1) Come and Get It - One For the Girls
2) A Gem of a Challenge - Anything but a square
3) Pile It On - #62 Easter/Spring
4) My Besties UK Challenge - Anything Goes or Bling (I've used bling on my flowers)
5) Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes with a Twist of Flowers
6) Fab 'n' Funky - #253 Lots of Layers

Wow! A fabulous card Pia, such a gorgeous image and so many wonderful details - your sentiment looks great, die cutting them from craft foam really makes them stand out doesn't it.

This card is lovely and so original, Pia! It's some different from your usual style, with all these embellishments and this mix of shapes in a little space. I really love it so much!!! You have created a beautiful scene and an adorable background for this cute baseball playing girl!!
The neutral colours make this card very stylish, and not too full!! Love the fussy cut baseball playing girl, it's adorable! Love also the shape of this card and the pretty patterned trees! Great work!

See, you've gone and done it perfectly. Who says girls have to be dusty and sweaty...they play just as good (if not better) surrounded by nature and fabulous flowers. I love how you made the scenery and added the month calendar behind her. Gorgeous card Pia and the hello stands out wonderfully.

Actually, the sentiment works really well even though an 'afterthought' - it stands out well against the embellished background. Sweet and pretty card.

Ohhhhh...I so love all the elements of this card. What a great backdrop for your fussy cut baseball girl image.

The butterflies are lovely with this and the addition of the die cut sentiment is perfect.
