Truly Scrumptious Challenge - Golfer's Birthday Card!

Hi there!
I hope you're all having a great day! I have all the kids at school today (yay!) so managed to get a birthday card done which I've been asked to do. I saw this weeks sketch challenge over at Truly Scrumptious and thought this would work perfectly for my card.
A golfers card was requested so I pulled out these cute new stamps which my sweet Mum had sent me recently. I paper pieced his vest and then used that same argyle paper for the squares. I found this awesome golf ball embellishment in my stash and placed it right where his club his - I think that works, don't you?! I coloured the image with my Tombow markers on watercolour paper. My neighbour is Jamaican so I wanted to be sure to colour him up in ethnic tones - I hope it looks ok! I cuttlebug embossed the back panel with the same argyle pattern.


And here's a quick glimpse at the inside of the finished card. I love this saying and I think it's perfect for anyone who 'plays'! ;)
Well, that's all for today folks! Thanks so much for stopping by - you know how much I appreciate your visits and comments! Have a great day!
Hugs,
