Basketball - Thanks

Hello friends,

I am sure most of you are starting to get busy with your Thanksgiving preparations. 

Today, I have a quick CAS card to share with you. Yes, this girl made a CAS card that took me under 15 minutes to make (and part of that was travel time to the basement where my Cameo is housed).

My son recently had a birthday, and on his actual birthday he and a buddy went to a Washington Wizards basketball game. These two played basketball together last year, so naturally, he wanted me to make his friend a basketball card to thank him for going with him and for the gift he received.

I started with a Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock base which is not visually seen from the front. I covered the Kraft base with patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket that I have had FOREVER! Digging into my leftover scraps, I found a piece of solid green cardstock (pulling the green from the patterned paper) and added to the center. I die-cut the word thanks in black from a My Creative Time set. 

Next, my trip to the basement to cut the basketball out using my Cameo. I have a very thin left over piece of Orange Cardstock and I added that to give a border on the green cardstock (want not waste not). I added the basketball to the center adding the sentiment just below to complete this very simple card.

Hopefully his friend will like it and remember their special time to their first NBA game.  Here is a picture of the boys and their basketball coach watching the game intently.  
I am sharing at Amusing Challenge - Thanks.

A little humor before I sign off.

I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!
