Hi - this is the second card I designed for the card party. I always like to include something masculine, otherwise I would probably put flowers on everything! I used a Cloud 9 Designs background stamp I got on clearance at Joann's for the houndstooth background. I can see why it was on clearance, the quality of the stamp is not very good and it was difficult to get a good image out of it, but for the way it was used I didn't need it to be super crisp. The golf stamp is from an old See Dee's set called Father's Day that I have had for years. The Happy Birthday stamp is from Stampin' Up, I love their stamps! Other than that I just card stock from my stash and a button and some twine. I got some cool acrylic shapes a while back at Pat Catan's that came in different sizes. They are very thin and they are for tearing out the shape, I used it for the cream behind the image. I also inked all of the edges using Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip.
