For my card, as I said above, I used the new Pure Innocence Baseball Boy. I colored him with Copics after stamping him on X-Press It blending card. He was then cut out and layered with the Rectangle Stax Die-namics(both 1&2). My card stock colors are Ocean Tides(PTI), Going Gray, and Fossil(MFT). I paired it with the MME Lost&Found Portobello Road pack. I loved the soft muted colors, it made me think of baseball you see in old movies. I used the Jumbo Banner Day Die-namics(the second to the smallest banner) to make my sentiment flags. Using the new MiniScalloped Edge Die-namics, I was able to make their own scalloped embellishments at the top of the flags. I stamped my sentiments on them, and then added them on using some Stone Twine. The Mini Scalloped Edge Die-namics was also used for the strip across the card base. I cut out a circle panel using the Circle Stax Die-namics, and pierced it to look like a baseball...then covered it all up, LOL!! Oh well!! My ribbon is Kraft from MFT, and my brads are from Michael's. 

Here are the Die-namics I have used:

Well, that is it for me for tonight!!  Now, head on off to Kim's Blog  for a full list of designer's   participating today!
