Mark's Birthday

I made this card for my hubby's birthday!  This is Gus Golf from Bugaboo Stamps and can be purchased for $3.  I colored him with copics, glossy accents for his glasses, and cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched square die.  The layout is for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 100th Challenge and the color challenge at Catch The Bug.  Plaid DP from Doodlebug Designs friendly forest, Pumpkin Double Dot from Bo Bunny, and brown cs from my stash.  Brown Offray ribbon, computer generated sentiment, cut out with SB large circle die, and embossed with Cuttlebug swiss dot folder.

  2. Brenda I guess your hubby is a lover of Golf and his other love is you. I do hope your not a golfing widow? Love your card and those wonderful colours and embellishments. Thanks so much for sharing your work with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and good luck.

  3. Brenda, your card is wonderful and I'm sure your husband will love it. Good luck with the Bugaboo Challenge, hehe. I still haven't heard anything back from Tammy so it is so weird.

  4. Beautiful colours and love the papers and image. Big happy birthday to your hubby Brenda, and thanks for the nice comment on my bow card. It is a hard one to make and not really one to post out as so many layers, but I have made many now so getting the 'hang' of how to make it.xx {aNNie}

  5. Your card caught my eye immediately. I think it was the colors. I MUST remember the colors for a man and golf rather than the typical boring colors of blues and greens and browns. This is great!!!

  6. What a fun birthday card. Thanks for joining us. Hugs, Heide SSW2-DT
