You're a Hit!

I've had this concept in my mind for a while, but the other day it hit me (*grin*) that I could use one of the stitched lines in the A Muse stitched numbers clear set to make the baseball! The stamp is normally straight, so I gently bent it a little into an arch as I put it on the acrylic block and *bam* - baseball stitching! The sentiment is hand-lettered and the grass/dirt are the "poppin pastels" technique using Pebbles shimmer chalk.
