Play Ball!

Stacked Baseball Lamp from Christmas Tree Shops
Hi, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the Christmas Tree Shops site....I chose this adorable baseball lamp for my inspiration.  The red stitching on the lampshade gave me the idea to use some hand-stitching on my card. The stamps I used today are from the 'Baseball' Stamp/Die Duos set; the 'baseball' was cut from the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Circles Dies, matted with the ODBD Custom Circles Dies; a die from the ODBD Custom Stitched Ovals Dies set was used to trace the outline for the stitches; a small paper piercer was used to pierce the holes; some red embroidery thread was used to sew the stitches. I will also be submitting this to the 'Less Is More' challenge which is to use something on your CAS card which you would not normally unusual item is embroidery thread and hand-stitching.

Brilliant! Your hand stitching makes that circle look so much like a real ball, especially with the delicate shading around the edge. A perfect sentiment too. Thanks so much for popping this little beauty into our challenge at Less is More xx
