Greatest Fan

 My brother-in-law is a big Yankee's fan. I wanted to make him a special card for his birthday. This is what I came up with.

  I used my Wishblade to cut the words greatest & fan. The Yankee logo was fussy cut using some Free Clip Art I found on the internet.  I curved the happy birthday sentiment from Enjoy the Ride.  The words in red were generated on the computer. I found the background paper at Hobby Lobby, altered it a tad in order to get the look I wanted with the side stitching.

 A peek of the inside sentiment also generated with my computer.

 I really liked how this card turned out. So did my brother-in-law. thanks for stopping by.

What an awesome card. It looks like a lot of work and a lot of love went into it. I really like how you did the logo. I've been wondering--what is a wishblade?
