Thanks Coach!

Hi there! As you probably know from a previous post, my son Tyler plays baseball. He recently played his last game for "The Angels" for the season. So I thought I would make a card for the Coach (hey - better late than never - LOL). His coach is a great guy - and deserves some acknowledgement - especially for dealing with a group of wild 6 and 7 year old boys - and volunteering to do it!!!
So I went to my stamp set Game On by Our Craft Lounge. It is perfect for both card making and scrapbooking. I just LOVE the star in the sentiment "You're A Super Star". So I decided to use that for my card. Now what? Hmmm - I need a layout. So off to Card Positioning Systems to see if something spoke to me. And BAM - there it was - CPS#20. It even had a STAR in the sketch!!! Perfection! (yes - little things make me very very happy)

For the main image using the sentiment, I used a star brad inside the star - an idea I got from my friend Kendra, who used a star brad in the middle of a star on one of her projects. And then I punched out my embellishment star with my SU! star punch. What card is complete without SPARKLE???? So I used my Lemon Drop Crafty Sparkles and blinged the star up! Oooh yeah - that's what I'm talkin' about!

Oh - and once again I made my own background - on the grey I stamped "Go Team Go" repeatedly. I love that - being able to create something to match with stamps!

Hope you have a great day!
