VCMP Challenge #8 Sports Theme Card

Hello all of you out there in blog land.  It's very warm and muggy here today but I'm looking at our red maple in the front yard and just noticed that it has already lost that beautiful shade of reddish/maroon.  The leaves look completely dead already.  That makes me kind of sad.
Anyway Cherie has challenged us to make a sports themed card for our heroes to send home to their family and friends.  Here is what I came up with.  I'm running a little low on energy today.
I used a House Mouse image titled Great Catch.  I colored it with my Copics and cut it out using  SB circle and scallop circle dies.  The background is the pillow top technique that Gina K Designs showcased last week.  It reminds me of how the baseball diamond looks on TV.  The sentiment is computer generated.  That's about it for now.  The next challenge I've started is the one that represents my state of Massachusetts.  I do have to take a break this afternoon as I have company coming, but hopefully I'll get back to crafting later on this afternoon.  As always I thank you for stopping by.
