Playing Golf

Hello Everyone!
I have another birthday card to share with you this week.

This one is for a dear uncle of my husband's family.
Uncle Les turns 86 this March and he is still going strong,
playing golf 3 times a week.
I thought this LOTV image is perfect for him.

I used the current sketch from The Sketchy Challenge #68 Annette's Sketch.

I water colored the LOTV Playing Golf image with DI pads.
I frantaged around the image and hand cut out 3 golf tees for decoration.

Dies: Go Kreate, La La Land Crafts, Magnolia, and Spellbinder.
DPs: Basic Grey, Magnolia and Maja Design Life in the country Collection. 
Sentiments: retired Stampin'Up 

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl:
White tiny ric rac ribbon, 13mm Olivia white cluny lace,
ivory button twine, blue RGirl pretty blossom flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week!


I wish to enter this card in the following challenges:

What an absolutely sweet card! I have to ask you to forgive me Katie for leaving you the comments and visiting your wonderful blog so late. I'm like a cardmaking machine - finishing cards just about time before I have to post them and not visiting my friends' blog at all. Will have to change that as soon as possible :)
