Have a ball!

Emily also had a sleepover birthday party to go to Fri. night (Brad and I went on a DATE! woo-hoo!). I made 2 cards for her to choose from, before remembering she had already made one for her friend weeks ago! I should have photographed it, but I forgot. It turned out really cute. Anyway, this is the first card I made. The second copy actually--I had a LOT of trouble with it for some reason. Either I or my machine kept messing up cuts. When I finally got all the layers cut, I put them together and managed to get glue all over everything. So, I started all over. But I'm very pleased with how it turned out. The seal and sentiment are from Birthday Bash.
I created a frame card in my Gypsy, using THIS TUTORIAL from She's a Sassy Lady's blog. I welded the seal and sentiment in Gypsy too. Then I cut the layers. I glittered the layers on the ball and his hatband with Doodlebug sugar glitter. I drew his nose and eyes with a marker. Anyway, I think this is adorable and will def. be making more, now that I'm aware of the pitfalls LOL! Happy Crafting!
