 My project for today, the second day of the hop is another birthday card. I make all the cards I send to our families thru out the year, so I have to make LOTS of cards. This card is for my nephews. Its another card I scrap lifted but this time it was from Love Life Crafts. She designed it on her Gypsy and I couldn't find the exact same cuts that she had but I also used my Gypsy.

 I welded the wings from the Indie Art cartridge with a circle from Accent Essentials.  I'm not great at making shadows fit the image yet. Especially if it doesn't come with a shadow feature. But it's good enough for the little guys. I drew the lines on the grey wings because they were looking very plain. The basket ball was ran thru my Cuttlebug with the Tiny bubbles folder. Before I put it thru the embosser my husband drew the basketball lines for me. I also ran the background paper thru with the A2 Stars folder. I cut the background paper down leaving spaces inbetween for added interest. I rounded the edges. I couldn't find basketball ribbon so I used orange and black ribbon I had on hand. So quick and easy.

I have another giveaway for today and YES you can win both prizes if chooses your numbers both days. So please become a follower and leave a comment with your contact info. Make sure you check back on March 16 when I pick a winner for both days. This is open to US residents only. Todays prize is a $10.00 Gift Certificate to use on a stamp set at Close To My Heart. The certificate can be used by contacting me with your choice.
