Golfer

My card is for a golfer who is celebrating his birthday today.  

I bought this Tonic Studio 'Golf Ball, Tee and Turf' a few months ago with this friend in mind. The die cuts were assembled on a blue MB 'Stitched Rectangle' mat.  The sentiment it one of a set of three Impression Obsession text dies, which leaves the letters attached to the card.  I attached the blue mat onto the red card and trimmed down the sides and across the bottom to make a frame.  I used a Sizzix dots embossing folder for the background to match the dots on the golf ball.  Five Card Candi finished off my card.

I am joining in the following challenges:
Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge Challenge # 148 ~ Something Beginning with T (Tee and Turf)
Win and Tonic November Challenge ~ Take Your Pick (Product)
