FOUR!

I WON FIRST PRIZE AT MAKE IT COLOURFUL WITH THIS CARD!
I made this card for my brother in law who thinks he is an ace golfer lol...don't they all! I got these gorgeous background sheets from the lovely Nicky at STAMPINGALLDAY and just thought it would suit a golf card background perfectly. If you haven't been over to STAMPINGALLDAY please drop over. Nicky does the best sentiment stamps around. I have 2 cds filled with them now! But she also does gorgeous background papers and has lots of freebies on there too, so well worth a visit!
I made the golfer transparent so I could position him on the background sheet. I printed him off twice so I could colour the top image and cut out and 3d to give a bit of depth. Please bear in mind my printer is low on ink, has been refilled but not happy about it. So next time I use these backgrounds they will be much brighter in colour. I added a golf quote to the papers before printing out.
