Creative Knockouts Challenge #153 - Favorite Colors

Welcome to another Creative Knockouts Challenge.  This one is sponsored by Imagine That Digi Stamps.  I used Baseball Boy for my card.  Three digis come with the set, the boy as you see him as well as a baseball bat and ball.  After coloring the boy, I fussy cut around it and popped it out.  I created the background using the bat and ball and some word art.

My husband takes our grandsons on a baseball trip every summer.  They go to farm team games and minor league games in the midwest.  This was the first trip for the youngest, so I made a card for them.  Great memories!

Our challenge is using your favorite colors.  I don't really have favorite colors, but what I do love is to use neutrals with a bright pop of color, hence the brown with the bright blue.  Take a peek at the rest of the DT's work here and then play along with us.
