DT post by Kate - Awesome bday card for teenage boy!

Hello crafters!  I'm Kate from Small Bits of Paper and I'm happy to be sharing a card with you today.

I used Basketball Solutions to create the oversized ball on this card, hand cutting it down to fit the 5x5 card base.  The basketball player is also from Basketball Solutions.  I used some silver metallic paper for the shadow - and used the same paper to cut a pennant using a Lacy Banners metal dies.

The orange circle around the sentiment was cut using one of the Tiny Doilies metal dies.  The inner white circle was cut using a metal die from the same set.  The "wish BIG" sentiment is from the Tiny Tags set.  I added a bit of Halloween baker's twine behind the sentiment pennant.

I stamped inside my card too!  This time, I used a fun sentiment from the  Birthday Wishes stamp set. 

Thanks so much for visiting My Craft Spot today.  Have a fabulous day!
