Birthday Card For Male Using CTMH ProPlayer Paper

DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #75 - Theme is Sports

Hi to all you wonderful, gorgeous, creative readers.  I am so glad you are back to see my creation again this week.  It has been really hot here in Southern CA.  I hope you are having nice weather wherever you are right now.  I have been trying to create as much as possible; but never enough time to do it all. 
It is time for another great week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Challenge 75- Sports.  Our sponsor this week is SK Digis.  Be sure to visit their store to see all of their incredible Digi stamps.  I think I own a lot of them already.  Don't forget to visit the blogs of the DT.  They work hard every week to inspire you through their creations.  If you would like to be a Guest Designer for Tammy's Scrapin Corner; be sure to add GDT behind your name when you enter our challenge.  Good luck on being chosen.
I had a bit of a challenge this week trying to find a sport that I could relate to or one that I could use to make a card for my friends or family.  I finally chose "Video Boy" with Mo's Digital Pencil.  My step son was having a birthday and this Digi reminded me of him; as he is a gamer.  I really wanted to use this Digi; but I didn't think it was considered a sport until I checked online.  I used CTMH Pro Player Paper Pack; which really worked great for a gamer.  I hope you enjoy this card.
