Summer = Golfers!

>> Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Welcome!

Happy Summer to all - finally!  We had a mostly mild spring, with periods of torrential rain, but summer has come in like that March lion and I think we've had an official heatwave in the first 5 days......when's winter??

My card today is for all those golfer's out enjoying the hot, hot sun :)



I started by stamping my focal images - I stamped the Silhouette Golfer using vintage green ink and stamped the Back Nine Birthday sentiment directly on top using black ink, trimmed it, cut the corners and layered it on black.
 The plaid layer was created using part of our Woven Plaid Stamp.  I only inked and stamped the largest and smallest of the lines and just repeated the pattern both horizontally and vertically.  This layer was attached to a green layer which was run through a cuttlebug using the swiss dots bg and brayered with vintage green ink.  Since I was going for a "manly" look I decided to keep it simple without buttons and bows and just layered it on a folded black card.

Just a reminder, you have until 6pm tonight to link your card for our "Great Outdoors" challenge!  Good Luck!!

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Sue
