A Birthday Card For a Male

I was asked last week if I could make a birthday card for a 40 year old male who loves golf. This was what I came up with and it just happens to fit with the challenge over on the CD Sunday blog this fortnight, which is A Birthday card For A Male. This is an 8x8 card base and the image and background are from La Pashe The Big One CD. I took the images into MCS and resized the background until I could crop out the bit that I wanted to use, placed onto some green card for matting. I also wrote the sentiment in MCS and printed it onto the background. The golfer was resized slightly to fit with the proportions of the background and I popped the layers together with glue gel.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

What a great card for a golfer and I know quite few for whom the game also involves quantities of beer as well! Fabulous.

This is a super card and I know a friend you would appreciate a 'golfing' card like this. Great layout and use of different programs in designing it.
