Out to the Ball Game

Out to the Ball Game - It is time for a new challenge at Gruffies and Guests.  Our challenge is anything goes with the optional of masculine!

I used this adorable Hopper image and colored him with Copics. I airbrushed a faint blue background. You can't really see it, but it does seem to bring the image to the foreground a little more.

My papers are Fancy Pants Designs, Little Sport, inked with Old Paper distress ink.

A little ribbon and 3 buttons finish off this masculine card.
