Jolly Nation Golfer

For today's card I've dug deep into my crafty stash - this Jolly Nation decoupage golfer is about 13 years old. I've always had a soft spot for decoupage and this range of images was among my favourites.

I've created the background by just colouring the card with the big end of the promarkers - it's hard to see but the 'grass' is raised with pads. I've added an embossed background to represent the texture of a golf ball and the Argyle patterned paper compliments the golfer's pullover.

The greeting was created in Publisher using Copperplate Gothic font and as a final embellishment I've added a couple of clouds.

I'm playing along with the challenges at:

Watercooler Wednesdays #309 - masculine twist

Aud Sentiments #268 - anything goes

Fab N Funky #511 - birthday TOP 3

Creative Fingers #282 - anything goes

Seize The Birthday #208 - create a scene

Creative Knockouts #389 - lots of layers

Thanks for visiting
