Easter Eggplants

What a beautiful spring day! 
Perfect for Matt's first baseball game of the season.  
He got 2 nice hits.  
Nothing like a toothless 7 yr old's big grin!  

I did manage to get this gatefold card made 
before going to the game. 
A while ago I won some digis from the Octopode Factory and almost forgot to use this cute Easter image.

The background dp and inside sentiment were freebies from a recent Quick Cards magazine.  I colored the eggplants with markers, used my Spellbinders scalloped oval to cut the image and a Fiskar's lace corner punch.

I'll be entering this in the following Easter and Misc Challenges:
