Day 5 Blog Hop with Graphic 45 and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Welcome to Day 5 of the Graphic 45 and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog hop!
I have always loved the vintage style of Graphic 45!  I remember the first time they showcased their product at CHA.  It was a tiny booth but cute and quaint....all right before they became total rockstars! I was in love immediately!

I would normally have chosen papers from a more feminine line, but I wanted to make a card for a special little boy. 
You may have heard of Danny, who just turned 5,  who has an inoperable brain tumor.  His one wish for his birthday was to get lots of cards.  And LOTS of cards he received!
I used papers from the Good Ol' Sport collection.  I added touches of German Glass Glitter in gold.  I added Scrapbook Adhesives  by 3L 3D foam stars.  They got a generous coating of glitter as well!
I added several sequins using my Dodz™ and rustic twine.  The added baseball images were adhered using Scrapbook Adhesives Foam tape in white.
