I have used a plain square white card and matted some silver and green onto it. It really isn't clear from the photo but for the white card under the 3d embellishments I have made another 'watermark' backing sheet, and this time it is of a golfer taking a swing shot, that I got from clipart in word. It looks really effective in the flesh. Another first for me was doing some hand drawn faux stitches, which actually gave the card a lift. Decided to do it on the sentiment to, but went a bit to wonky, but never mind, it is the thought that counts. Nice, simple and easy to make card, and I am please with how it has come out.
I'd like to enter it into the following challenges:
Craftalicious Challenge - Birthdays
Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Happy Birthday
The Crazy Challenge - Boys will be Boys
