B-Ball B-day

Today marks the start of another challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas.
This week the challenge is:

This is a standard A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") card. I grabbed this paper on clearance at Joann's. An orange cardstock base, black cardstock layer, and the patterned paper full of basketballs, it really just screams boy card! I added some orange and white twine to add interest. The orange and patterned paper is inked with brown ink.

I added three black brads and a happy birthday sentiment stamp from Studio G.

This basketball is cut at 3" from Life's a Party. I embossed the orange layer using the Bubbles Cuttlebug folder and inked with brown ink to add texture and interest. This basketball is also attached with an Action Wobble. That sure makes this card extra fun!!

The inside of the card is outfitted to match the front. I love adding the layers to the inside. 

We'd love for you to stop by Die Cuttin' Divas and enter the challenge!
