RAVEN Inspired

Happy Hellos Everyone!!!

Of course everyday is a special day, but today the RAVENS play their rivals, the Pittsburg Steelers and that puts that little extra in front of special. It's the best match-up in football which gives it a superbowl game feel mid-season. Anybody that knows me, knows I am an advid Baltimore RAVENS fan. I look forward to attending every home game. There's nothing like it---the atmosphere, the fans, the tailgates and when they're away, I'm drawn to some television or radio [if I'm in a car]. So, you get the picture.

Today's birthday card is inspired by the my favorite football team. I had such a great time creating this card and I thought today is a perfect day to share it with you. Although, this card can be given to a male or female recipient, it was created witha a male in mind. Take a look....

As you maybe aware, there are few, if any official licensed NFL papers available, so I had to improvise. I purchase the ravens paper from my LSS. Notice the word Baltimore is missing. Wouldn't want things to get messy. Right. I used my new number dies from Papertrey and cut out the numbers of some of my favorite players, but not before using the team colors to stamp and emboss the cardstock with a few of my Halloween stamps. The good thing is the numbers work well for a recipient's birthday too. I'm not sure whether you noticed, but one number is flushed to the card and the other number has been raised using dimensionals to show elevation. The sentiment is truly belongs to me and was computer generated and cut out using a die. I'm not feeling the ribbon and since I made this set, I discovered a more masculine ribbon. I just didn't have enough to complete a set.

Well, I hope you like what you have seen here at The Peddler's Gallery and perhaps it may have inspired you to create special sports theme [birthday] card for that special person in your life. I'm sure their birthday is worth Rav'in over too.

Thanks for stopping by the gallery and come back real soon.
