Golf Theme Congrats Card for Freshly Made Sketches #105

If you are a golfer (or know one) you probably are aware that we want to someday "shoot our age".  That can be said to be an "advantage of aging".  My dear adopted uncle Bob shot 81 two weeks ago which is actually under his 82 years!  So I wanted to commemorate the occasion by making him a special card.  I followed the Freshly Made Sketch #105 to create this card. 

I can't tell you who manufactured the golf ball or grass papers as they have been in my stash for quite awhile.  The other supplies I used are:  Ponderosa Pine CS, Metallic Gold CS (retired CTMH), Artiste Collection stamps, Versamark Ink, Gold Embossing Powder, Ponderosa Pine ink, 3D Foam Tape and some gold ribbon.

Here is a side view so you can see the card lining and raised pieces.

Another thing that I made for him was a bag tag. for his golf bag so he can be reminded of his special achievement.

There is still time to enter the Sunday Stamps color challenge.  We would love to have you play along with us there.

 Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
