...Swing

This is actually my first attempt at a sentiment only card. It took me a little while to get it all laid out, but I am very happy with the final result. Will definitely try this again. The sentiment is from an old stamp set of quotes from kids that I had never even opened. I love the baseball reference and decided to try to keep it going with the hand drawn red stitching on the circle as well as my red and white bakers twine. I layered it onto some bright green cardstock cut with a Nestabilities die. The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Fly a Kite. The aqua cardstock is embossed with a cuttlebug folder (think it is seeing spots but won't swear to it). The big red button and green rhinestones are from my stash.
Thanks for looking!


***This is my PCP color challenge week two project--would love it if you posted a project over there using red, white and bright green!!!***
