60th birthday commission card

Hi there lovelies - still cold isn't it? I hope you're well wrapped up! We certainly were yesterday when we visited the Christmas markets in Manchester - and blimey - what prices they charged!!!! I saw some beautiful gingerbread houses for around £30 - then saw identical things in Aldi at £5.95!!! Good old Aldi!!!

Anyway - onto today's card - another non- Christmassy one I'm afraid - there might be something Christmassy coming tomorrow! Today's card is one I've made for a friend's husband's 60th birthday - he's quite portly and into his golf so I thought this was the perfect image - its fromDigistamp Boutique and I think is called Alf- Golf - I think!!!!




The image has been coloured with promarkers and I've distressed the edges of the image with faded jeans DI whilst the image was still in the die. The letters and numbers are from sets by claritystamp. The golf bits are from crafttime.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

OSAATonestitchatatimechallenge: Anything goes

Big Hugs
