Forever Royal

Hard to believe the Royals season will begin tonight.  I love these guys and selling tickets at Kauffman Stadium has been one of the most rewarding jobs I could have ever imagined.  This Sentiment from Suite Sayings could not be more PERFECT for this card and our Team!

This card is going to a very sweet lady, long time Royals fan who is battling cancer and I hope this card will make her SMILE.  I have been struggling trying to make a card for her and realized this was THE CARD. 

The paper is not Stampin' Up because we currently do not have a Royal Blue.  But the rest is ALL Stampin' UP.  The ball was punched with the 2 1/2 circle punch.  Sentiment stamped and then stitched with the Cherry Cobbler marker.  Grunged up a bit with Smoky Slate and Crumb cake sponging.  Little Letters Thinlits have paid for themselves over and over even if all I spell is ROYAL!  The CROWN is a portion of a Large Gold Doily.
