Happy Birthday Hal!

My brother has a big birthday coming next week and he is a big time Yankee's Fan!!  He has been a Yankee's Fan since elementary school and that is a long time ago since he will be turning 55!  So to celebrate his favorite team, I made him a pin-stripe game shirt for his card.

The "v" neck of the shirt is made from Stampin up's photo corner punch and the triangles for the raglan sleeve is from Stampin up's tag punch which I cut to make triangles.  Again the tag punch was used for the pocket and sizzix for the numbers and letters.  Nestabilities for the ball and sentiment.  I used Tim Holtz distressed inks to make the ball a little "used" and outlined the stitching on the ball with red marker.  Just added some buttons to finish off the shirt.

Since we are in Red Sox country, just couldn't resist a little teasing for the inside of the card.  But I figured by the time Hal got this card, who knows, probably the Yankees will be in first place and Hal's birthday will be perfect!!  Happy Birthday brother!!!
