"Fore" Your Birthday

Hi again!  I'm back with a second quick post today.  I'm not really supposed to be up, but I wasn't resting well and I was antsy to post a card I made for a couple of challenges. Obviously, I'm not a very good patient - lol!  Anyway, I'll make it quick. There are a lot of Father's Day/masculine challenges out there and I went with the masculine theme for all of them.  Since I lost my Dad 6 years ago and my father-in-law last month, I don't really do Father's Day cards.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Not Quite Navy and the patterned papers are from the Authentique Loyal 6x6 pad.  The golf bag image was a freebie from Tiddly Inks with the purchase of the Father's Day-Vintage Truck digi.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added some grass under it with my Copics, too.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.   A bit of stitched ribbon on the tag finished my masculine card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by again!  I'll be back tomorrow with a special post, so hope to see you then.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Tiddly Inks Challenge #135 (Lou's sketch)
Hobby Cutz Challenge #51 (Father's Day or masculine)
Craft Your Passion Challenge #217 (Father's Day or for the men/boys)
Tuesday Throwdown #199 (for a special Man)
Seize the Birthday (summertime plus birthday)
Digi Galore (nautical or blue)
Papertake Weekly (for the boys)
Cute Card Thursday #325 (so macho)

Here is Lou's Tiddly sketch:
