It's Sports Day!

Happy hump day all!
Don't you just love Wednesdays!
I love them for two reasons! One, it's half way through the week!
Two, it's time for a brand new challenge over at Dude Time Doodles!
This week, the theme is It's Sports Day
We want to see your Dude projects with a Sports Theme!
Here's my card

 I've used the Golfin' Greg Set to make an A5 landscape card!
The base card is Kraft as is the matting under the DP's!
He doesn't look too happy at all does he!
The Sentiment I've used is one of three included in the set!

I coloured Greg with Promarkers & as if he wasn't ditressed enough, 
I inked around the image & sentiment with Antique Linen  Distress Ink 
then cut around them both with some fancy edge scissors! 
I don't know when I last had those out! lol
Poor Greg! Just because it's your hobby doesn't mean 
you're good at it but you should at least enjoy it!! lol

The DP's I used are from an A4 Pad of male Craft Papers from
The quality of these papers is second to none &
they are great value for money! 
The golf bag image was cut from one of the sheets of paper 
as was the golf ball below! 
I think the colours I've used & these images give my card a vintage feel.
I also punched some leaves from the plaid pattern paper with a Woodware punch,
this gives a little added texture to the card!

I decided to keep my card as flat as possible!
Postage rates here in the UK are set to rise quite considerably & cost
will have to be considered when sending off greetings cards in future!
Thanks for stopping by to look at my card!
Now for your cahnce to win 3 images,pop on over to the

  12. Oh, I am so in love with the papers you used on this card, Dawn! That sentiment is perfect with the image. I'm going to have to do a card like this for my SIL.
