There's a new challenge blog called Fab Friday and this fortnight they have a colour challenge going. When I saw the combo it immediately made me think of argyle and that made me think of golf - hence the theme of my card and today's header!

Here's the colour palette:

I thought it would be fun to play on the meaning of Fore! (which is a warning to golfers ahead to take care of golf balls coming their way) and use it as a warning against an impending birthday! He he he! I know, I crack myself up sometimes!

Materials used:
  • stamps - unknown
  • card - Sahara sand, so saffron, very vanilla, watercolour, basic grey patterns paper
  • other - argyle embossing folder, modern label punch, aquapainter, inks, markers, dimensionals, computer and printer, sponge daubers, square punch, Big Shot

To make the yellow and grey argyle bunting I inked up my embossing folder before adding the cardstock and running it through my Big Shot. A reasonably good match for his socks, don't you think? LOL!

Making a golf-themed card made me think of my dear old dad, who passed away 9 years ago but who was a really keen golfer during my formative years and even won the air force championship a couple of times. I used to enjoy caddying for him sometimes and getting a glass of lemonade at the 19th hole! Miss you dad, hope you enjoy this card wherever you are.

Thanks for dropping by.

What a wonderful masculine card! Your watercoloring is amazing! I also love that you inked up your embossing folder before running it through. Your sentiment is so fun, too! Thanks for playing at Fab Friday!
