Hey batter, batter, batter!

I created this card for the Greeting Farm's Case of the Curious Card IV Challenge. Since I brought in Spring with my butterfly cards, I thought it was time to bring in the Summer. So what do you think of when you think of summer? Is it America's favorite past-time sport of Baseball? I live in Maryland and am about 1.5 hours away from the Orioles Stadium. The Orioles are big here and I thought that would make a great card to bring in the Summer. My title came from one of my all time favorite movies "Ferris Bueller's Day Off". Now my talented friend Sandra is always finding the perfect papers and when I got Digi Ian I knew I was going to use the baseball diamond paper from K&Company. A perfect match I think. Sandra must have sent some of her paper mojo my way.
