Cheers to You Golfer

On March 28th, I participated in the Mini VSN challenges over at SplitCoast Stampers. For VSN in May, we're going to Vegas baby!!! So all the challenges last week used inspiration from various hotels in Las Vegas.

If you've ever been, you know that the Venitian is plush with lots of rich, regal colours. Our challenge for the Venitan Hour (12 noon) was to use burgundy, navy blue, gold and white/cream. As I was pulling the colours I thought that they leaned toward a masculine card.

Since my BIL has a birthday today, I decided to make a card for him using Golfafella which was so GENEROUSLY stamped for me by Annabelle who plays with me over on the Canadian Express Image Swap thread at SCS. My BIL is an AVID golfer, so I knew the image would be perfect!


I coloured our fella in with a combination of SU! Markers and Copics and then matted him with the three Venetian colours before adhering my stack to an A2 card face. The "Cheers to You" was also received from the Canadian Express Image Swap thread.

What do you think?

Stamps: Golfafella
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Cardstock: Whisper White, Bazzill
Accessories: SU! Markers, Copic Markers

Happy Stampin'!
