Basketball pop up card

Here is another pop up card from @shahicreationz made exclusively for my husband. He is one of the best basketball player I have ever met in my life. “Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there. I’m really proud of you my dear ❤️”

I’m also adding this card to the maleroomcraftchallenge for the month of July. (Challenge #140 – Sport)
