Freshly Made Sketches

Today I have been busy in my craft room making 2 cards. The one I am showing today is for my husband's birthday which is next week. We all know that men's card are a pain. I don't know why because there are some lovely things about to make male cards.

For this card I went to Pintrest like many of us for inspiration and I found a card that I liked which was a bit different to the ones I always do which always seem to do with golf :-) 

Whilst looking through the challenge blogs I came across the sketch on Freshly Made Sketches which fitted the card exactly. 

Here is the sketch

Here is my card. 

I have used a 5 x 7 card blank, dark brown backing card & Kraft card from my stash. The Kraft card was embossed using 'Woodgrain' folder from Darice. Scraps of card used for the banners. Greeting is computer generated, cut with spellbinders classic rectangles and mini pearls to finish it off. The greeting was printed onto white card so I dusted it with brown chalk to tone in. 

Thank you for reading
