That's the way the ball bounces


I made this basketball...or at least what was supposed to be a basketball for the current Cas-ual Fridays Challenge.

This was my fourth attempt at making this card.  I got so tired of trying that my hubby stepped in and helped me.  He got a basketball from the garage.  Set it on my craft desk.  Then proceeded to draw the lines for me.  Gotta love the man.  All I had to do was cut it and put it together...granted I could've done that better but I must say this version is a WHOLE LOT BETTA (love my perfect grammar) than my previous attempts.  Practice might not make perfect, but it definitely made better.

What do you think?
'til I craft again or have something to say...

~Supplies~
Paper: Orange and Black (Hobby Lobby), White (Georgia Pacific)
Ink: Rusty Hinge and Old Paper Distress Ink (Ranger)
Accessories: Embossing Folder (Provocraft), Circle Coluzzle, Microsoft Word, Foam Squares

Aren't husbands the best - they always know just how to help us out when we are in a bind! That texture is so perfect on your card and it really caught my eye in the gallery. So glad you have joined us this week at CAS-ual Fridays.
