Commissioned Birthday Card


I was asked to make a card for a customer's son who is into golf.  As he's in his 20's I knew that this Kenny K image would be perfect.  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and Copics and then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz's Faded Jeans distress ink pad.  The matting and layering has been done with various scraps of paper from my stash and some blue mirri card.  I brought the layers together with some faux stitching and some faux ribbon.  The card is simply finished off with a sentiment off the computer and a jump ring and golf bag charm which I've had for many years now.

This card fits the following challenges:

Fab n Funky - What 'eva
Crafty Sentiments - Use a digi
Lili of the Valley - One for the boys
Digi Doodle - Use a charm
Lollipop Crafts - All about family
Digital Tuesday - Sports
Papertake Weekly - Photo inspiration.
