Birthday Card for My Daughter

Yes, this is a birthday card for a girl.  My daughter has never met a sport she doesn't like, but baseball is her first love. This make her the perfect child for my husband, the sports addict.  Every year Santa Claus brings her season tickets to the Richmond Flying Squirrels, the double A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants,so the two of them spend the summer at the Diamond enjoying father daughter bonding time.  It makes perfect sense that I would made her a Squirrels themed card.  I started by printing their logo on photo paper and cutting it out.  The baseball was made with a circle punch on which I hand drew the stitching.  I made the stripes by cutting strips of Snowhaven Paper, a winter themed paper.  Never let yourself be limited by what a product is designed for!  The layout is based on this sketch from Sunday Stamps:
