Basketball Mojo

Morning, All! There's a bright orange ball in the sky this morning. Not sure what it is. I am very confused!

First today, I'd like to thank Ruthie for awarding me the Stylish Blogger award. Check out her site; she's got some beautiful projects!

My niece is the family basketball star, so I created a popular basketball card for her, but I incorporated a Mojo Monday sketch to make it more fun. Don't pay attention that I spilled coffee on the cardstock midway through production. *eyeroll* Just another manic Monday...

The sketch -

I texturized the basketball with the Backgrounds I Texturz Plate and highlighted with Cajun Craze ink. The basketball ball court diagram was printed off the internet on Very Vanilla cardstock.

Stamps: Something to Celebrate; Paper: Early Espresso, Really Rust, Very Vanilla, Autumn Vine DSP; Ink: Early Espresso, Cajun Craze; Accessories: Sponge, Black Sharpie, Brads, Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, Backgrounds I Texturz Plates, 3-1/2" Circle die, Petal Cone die, Tasteful Trim die, Big Shot.

I'm off to go make more coffee. Thanks for stopping by!
