Anyone For Golf

Afternoon All.
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I've been a busy bee today and altered a wedding dress this morning. Number two son has disappeared round to his friends for the afternoon, so the house is peaceful, except for the kittens, who are having a mad half an hour chasing each other round the house, spurred on by the eldest son.
Anyhow, I have been trying to focus on my bear class this afternoon, and had this Design House decoupage paper ready for the class. After starring at it blankly for a while, hubby arrived on the scene bearing a mug of coffee, and said "Why don't you do a golf ball easel card". Well that was it, off I went and this is the result.
I have textured the white card with a Crafts Too folder, and defined the edges using distressing ink. Then I have simply created a circular easel card using a Quickutz cookie cutter, before mounting on the decoupage - "Simples !!!!"

I'd like to enter it into;

Cards For Men - anything goes
Lexi's Creations - Happy Birthday
Creative Cottage - embossing
Hope you like.
See you soon
