Nutzy the Flying Squirrel for Freshly Made Sketches

My daughter loves all sports, but baseball is her first love.  She has been able to sit though nine innings since the summer she was two.  Every year Santa Claus brings her season tickets for the Richmond Flying Squirrels so wouldn't it make sense that their mascot, Nutzy would be featured on her birthday card?  I had cut him out of a bumper sticker.  Can you say tedious?  The baseball is a 3D sticker from Paper House.  It had two layers of foam tape which was a little too 3D for me, so I peeled off one layer.  The layout comes from Freshly Made Sketches:

 Now I am off to bake a gluten free birthday cake!  Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time, Hansi
