ON THE GREEN

I wanted to make a "thinking of you" card to send to my nephew who will be home from the hospital soon, after having surgery. I've also been wanting to use this new golf stamp I bought, but didn't have a lot of time this week for card making. Things worked out great....this weeks challenge over at Bloggers Challenge was an easy sketch layout challenge and my nephew likes to golf... how perfect! I did alter the placement of the smallest layer a teeny bit because I wanted it to look as though the golfer was standing on it! LOL

I started out using Wild Wasabi, Whisper White and Basic Black card stock from Stampin' UP, along with some K&Company DP designed by Brenda Walton. I used Wild Wasabi ink on a background stamp called Antique Cracking, retired by Stampin' UP. My new golf image is called On The Green and the little greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set. Four little black brads were added to complete my card.

WISHING CHIP A SPEEDY RECOVERY!

How sweet of you to make a card for your nephew. I hope he recovers quickly so he can get back on the golf course! I like the greens a lot with this. The background stamp adds a nice element.
