A Hole in One Birthday

It was my son-in-laws birthday earlier in the month and he loves to golf so I made him this card using a Tiffany Doodles golf ball image.  I love her images, make sure you stop by and check them out if you like to work with digital images.
He is the son-in-law that works in a print shop and often brings me some gorgeous paper to use, so I wanted to make his card extra special, however I was a little late so I added the bleated birthday which was computer generated and added some eyelets to the edges of the strips of paper.
The grass paper I printed and cut using my Imagine cartridge Snapshot Nature.  I printed the golf club and ball image twice, once on white paper and once on silver.
As soon as the silver piece came out of my printer I sprinkle it with black embossing powder and heat embossed it so the black part is raised.  The golf ball I ran through my Cuttlebug using the dots folder then covered it with Glossy Accents, I shadowed the edges with a gray a bit to make it stand out.
Then I had another moment and I thought I would add the inside sentiment printed on paper printed with my Imagine to look like sand.  The using the Give a Hoot cartridge I cut it in the shape of a "sand trap".
I also used the grass paper on the inside and added a hole flag from the Everyday Paper Doll cartridge.  I think the whole thing came out rather cute, what do you think?
Thanks for popping in and taking a look at my card, I sure hope you liked it enough to look around my blog a bit.  Would love to hear what you think.
