A Card for a Golfer

Today, I am sharing a 70th birthday card a friend asked me to
make for one of her friends.
She requested for it to include if possible, either his local football team colours,
anything to do with golf or an allotment. 
Enough there for me to choose from, and this is what I came up with.
As I didn't have any suitable backing paper in my stash, I printed the
green backing paper from the Kanban CD-ROM.
After die-cutting the image and the sentiment, I glued them to
green card and carefully cut around each one to give them a narrow frame.
Using the debossed side from the Tiny Bubbles embossing folder gives
a good texture for the golf balls.

The items I have used are:-
DigiStamp Boutique - Golf Alf and Milestone WordArt
Spellbinders Labels 18
Cuttlebug Embossing Folders - Tiny Bubbles
Couture Creations A4 Embossing Folder - Swiss Dots
Hobbycraft - Wooden Letters and Circle Punch
Kanban CD-Rom - Male Backgrounds
