Happy Birthday to Dawson!

Today is my nephew Dawson's 9th birthday and he loves baseball and he is on the Braves baseball team.  I wanted to make his birthday special, and this is what I came up with.

For the clouds I punched out a scallop circle and sponged around it with Bashful Blue and just kept moving the punch around.  Love the look!  For the hat I used 3 large (Night of Navy) oval punches and layered them and cut the bottoms off and hand cut the brim and glued them all together and added a (Real Red) brad. I did use a B (Real Red) from the retired Naturally Serif Sizzlits Decorative Strip Dies. The baseball was from a (Whisper White) 2 1/2 circle and I cut two; one to trace around to make the stitching on the ball and then free hand the stitches.  Happy Birthday was from Teeny Tiny Wishes set and window punch and modern label punch.

Happy Stamping!  Blessings!
