Yankee Birthday Card: 2014

My brother-in-law is an avid Yankee fan. Every year I try to make him a special birthday card. Here is the one I made him this year.
  I just love the diagonal coverplate. Makes card making so fast. Since I heat embossed the glove with clear embossing powder, I am submitting this for PTI's Blog Hop where the theme is high gloss. I originally put some glossy accents on the ball that is in the glove, but the red ink ran, so I replaced it with a non glossy ball. Here's the sentiment for my inside in which I did a lot of selective inking.
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek

Very clever card Carol! Am sure your BIL will be thrilled with this. I've been seeing a lot of masculine cards on the Hop today - a nice change from all the florals!
