Par For The Course

DSCF6886

Another masculine card today; this one fulfills three challenges:  the Stampin’ Royalty #7 is to make a masculine card; the ColourQ #20 is the color challenge below, and my friends at the Diva Coffee Break Designs have a sketch, also below:

I used a  set from last year’s Spring Mini Catalog called And Many Mower:

DSCF6884

I altered the sketch a tiny little bit, just so I could fit the sentiment on the front; the inside says “Happy Father’s Day”.  I have NO idea to whom I am going to send this; out of one father, a FIL and a step-FIL, no one plays golf!!  What was I thinking??  Anyone need a golf-related FD card?  Oh well, I had fun playing with all the colors!    A couple embossing folders added some texture and I colored the little golf ball with a Basic Black marker so I could use it as another embellishment.  Thanks, everyone, for the inspirations and challenge!

This is cute LeAnne! I love the little golf ball on the tee on that punched label! The embossing looks masculine too, so this will be great for some golfing guy :)
