BBTB2 Challenge- Make a Shape card

For the first challenge of September our BBTB2  Design Team sister Stephanie
 has asked us to design a shape card. 
I knew right away I was going to make a card for my daughter's baby shower coming up this next weekend.  
I already had the cuts I wanted on my Gypsy as I had made invitations for the shower (See below).  So all I needed to do was weld the shadow mitt cuts to make my shape card and make all the cuts bigger.  
I used the Boys Will be Boys Cartridge 
Mitt cut at 5 inches from page 29
Bat and Ball page 39 cut at 5 inches 
The All Star is cut from Life's a Party page 47 cut at 9 inches.  
Micah was cut from Nate's ABC at .75 inches 
I embossed the ball and the bat

Inside of card 
Here is the invitation that motivated me to make a matching card.  
I am having fun making 'boy" themed things after 3 granddaughters.  Next I am working on more goodies for the shower.  So stay tuned for more!
I hope you will join us this week for the "Shape Card" challenge.  Remember to link up to BBTB2 by Saturday.  Happy Craftin!
