First Card

Well, I made my first attempt at at a card. My niece, Hannah, has a birthday next month. She is an AWESOME soccer player. My husband is excited because he is going to help coach her traveling team. We are all surprised because he is more exciting about coaching Hannah's team then he is officiating this season. 


I want to enter this card into Cooking With Cricut's Challenge #15. I didn't use the sketch because I am really don't know what I am doing. I don't have many stamps, and what I do have wouldn't work. I can't use any of the sponsors stamps - Peachy Keen Stamps - because I don't own any yet. As soon as I get a teaching position I will be getting some goodies - until then, I am hoping to win some.


Here is my first attempt at a card!


Recipe:
Sports Mania - cut at 5 inches
Paper - all scraps
Happy Birthday - rub on - learned from Linda at The Paper Boutique.
Inside - will write a note to Hannah


If anyone has any suggestions, please share.
