Basketball Birthday Card

Good Morning Crafters, I hope you all had a great weekend.  I did, the Zoo
with my little Grand Kids on Friday, School Shopping with them on Saturday,
and Birthday Party with the older ones yesterday, Fun Fun!!!
So here is the Birthday card I made for the Birthday Boy yesterday.
He plays Basketball and his uniform is Green & White.
So I used the Everyday Paper Dolls for the Boy and the hoop and net
Everything is cut at 5".  I cut the Basket ball too but was not happy
with it so I used my Craft artisit and computer for the basketball.
I sized it to the same size the cricut one was, then printed it, cut it
out and the ran it through my cuttlebug in the tiny bubbles folder.
I used a simple shape for the red oval from Sure cuts alot 2.
The stamped sentiment , "happy birthday" is from my
Card Maker Kit of the Month Club, Birthday wishes kit.
I used Peachy Keen stamps for the face, wide eyed kids - 1 1/8".
I used my white gelly roll pen for the whites in the eyes and also
to outline the uniform in white.  I used paper from my stash for the
wood floor, I think I bought it at Hobby Lobby.
For the inside of the card I again used my Craft Artist and computer
to create the sentiment and also placed a smaller version of the basketball
to match it up with the front of the card.  He liked his card and said the
boy on the card looked like him.  I love the paper dolls carts!!!
