Wrestling All Star

Finally had a chance to ink up some of my new (to me) CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!!! And why not use them to create something for the current CAS-ual Fridays Challenge:

My nephew is ROCKIN' the Indiana high school wrestling circuit these days! His birthday is coming up, and I wanted to create the perfect customized card for him to celebrate not only his BIG DAY, but all of his recent accomplishments! Here's what I came up with:

The background design was created using an image from "Woot Woot" (CAS-ual Fridays Stamps)! The HB2U (teenage-speak) was stamped with Smitty's ABCs (Lawn Fawn) onto notebook patterned paper, outlined with the solid line from the "Woot Woot" stamp set, and then cut out. The wrestling and all star elements are chipboard stickers that I had in my stash.

I'll be mailing this out tomorrow! Hope my nephew likes it!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
