Basketball Birthday Card

My son's birthday is coming up next week.  He is super in to sports of all kinds, but right now are the basketball championships so I thought I would make him a card to go with his favorite thing.  I don't dare do anything that is too busy as he doesn't like that kind of thing.  He is very artistic, but loves everything simple.  The colors are horrible in these photos, but the card really turned out quite nicely.  I found a coloring page of a backboard, pixel traced it in MTC and cut it out with my wonderful Lynx cutter.  Then I repeated the process with the hoop and basket.  I did a print and cut for the basketball because I wanted it to look real.  I attached the hoop, basket and basketball with pop dots so it would stand out from the card.  It really looks like a basket is being made!  I made the front letters from the All Star font and attached them using my Xyron machine.  I just love the inside sentiment!  It fits him totally!   All in all, I think it turned out well.  I hope you all have a wonderful week and thank you so much for stopping by!
