Tee Time - Flourishes Sketch Challenge

So much to do and so little time. That has been my life this week. I had four Birthday cards to make this week and since they were all for family, they took longet to make. I posted my Daughter-in-law's yesterday  and my two grandson's on my CTMG Blog. So this is the last one. It's for my Son-in-law. It's really hard making a card for him. Actually, making masculine cards is something I don't enjoy doing. By he and my husband wend out golfing today so I relied on an old CTNG stamp set called Tee Time4 to make his card.
The inspiration for this card came from a sketch at Flourishes. I love the sketch and wanted to play along with flourishes stamps, but had to make this card so I used the sketch for it. Maybe I'll get a chance next week to make another.

I stamped the golf bag twice and cut out the secong one to layer with foam tape for more dimension. I used an image of a golf ball on place of the bow in the sketch. There was also an image of a small golf ball so I used two of them next to the Happy Birthday. I used Liquid Glass on all three Gold Balls.

The papers are form the Cherry-O Creative Basics pack from Close to my Heart.
The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.

Other Challenge Blogs this card was made for.

Love what you did with this sketch! Guy cards are difficult for me, too, but you made this one not only appropriate, but beautiful. It has a lot of appeal with your fabulous coloring and combined colors and papers. Very cool how you used the golf ball in place of the bow. I LOVE it!
