Hi All,
Almost 5:00 here -- where has the day gone?

Here is a card I've been working on for a few challenges. My nephew is an avid Tigers fan and I love the BBTB2  Click Here challenges so I was happy to incorporate the two. Now this will go out in the mail tomorrow.

I'm also entering this into Frosted Designs  Click Here  Challenge: to have a clock - I put mine on the inside I hope it fits the challenge.
 Cards for men -challenge: anything goes click here

I used Tim Holtz distressing ink in Antique linen to give the ball the look like it had been used. I wrote Al Kaline on the ball as close as possible to the way he wrote it, when he autographed the base balls
I used coredinations and AC card stock.
I used Lifes a party for the baseball and Blackletter for the "D"

iris blue ink-- chalkbox
stamp: stampendous
sakura white gel for the inside
I also cut the bottom so the card would sit flat for display
I hope He likes it.
