Sports at Sugar Creek Hollow Week 21

Happy Sporty Saturday Friends!!
It is week 21 at Sugar Creek Hollow and we would love to see your Vintage or Shabby Chic creations involve some "SPORTS" this week!
I found some fabulous "Sporty Images" at Gecko Galz, and chose to use them for my card this week!!  I chose Baseball as my sportiness!!
Here is what I came up with.
Pin It!
I stared out with the Graphci 45 patterned paper for my card base that I picked up from my Best Friend Ginny's Store.  I then used GIMP and INKSCAPE to create my other pieces.  I used the Play Ball Collage sheet and a vintage photo I found online.  The "all star team" was done in inkscape and I created an offset around it so that the pieces could be cut with my black cat cougar.
I inked all my edges with Vintage Photo Distress inks.  I used a kraft knife to distress the edges of the baseballs and photo.  Used the brown twine I received from Really Reasonable Ribbon and buttons from my stash.
Pro 31 Designs Blingy Bling mesh in brown, as well as the black with silver were used.  Pop dots were used to create a little depth in my card.
I am happy how my sporty card came out!
Thank you so much for visiting, 
I can't wait to see what kind of Vintage or Shabby Chic "Sports" themed creations you come up with!
