Rocker style baseball card for a little boy

Still have lots of painting to do, but had a bit of a break today while waiting for a repair man to fix our security system.  I spent the time playing with my Silhouette studio DE software.  I created this rocker style baseball card for the Children's Charity using simple circles.  The card base is a 5 1/2" circle filled with a baseball pattern.  Then I made a 2 3/4" circle and imported the baseball birdie onto the center of the circle.  The third piece is a 3" circle, filled with red, then added the baseball birdie onto that, centered and grouped them together.  Turned on cut lines, then I added registration marks, printed the pieces and cut out with my Silhouette.  Added some twine and pop dots to the back of the smaller circle, then attached to card base.  Baseball image and pattern paper are from a set called Baseball Birdies by Doodle Pantry.
