It's Golf Time

Hello folks.  Today I've made a birthday card for a young man in the family.  Last year he received Big Guy Grilling - so this year he gets Big Guy Golfing a Mo Manning image released in rubber through Stamping Bella.  Hey, I'm trying to stick with a theme here.  Hehe.

I actually was inspired by a card I found surfing the net for this.  I love having the image pop out of the image panel and I like the way it makes your mind think of a ball so I thought it would tie neatly with this card.  I stamped the image onto Bella's Bestest paper and colored with copics.  I then added shading for definition and depth using prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol.  I then used my Classic circle Nestie dies to make the image panel.  You simply trim up to the outside an inside edge of the Nestie and pop the image outside the die before you put this through your Cuttlebug or other cutting device.  I then layered Bazzil cardstock with additional Nestie dies. 
Design paper is from the Simple Stories Generations 6x6 collection.  No machine stitching if you can believe it.  And finally I topped it with buttons and brown hemp just to fill some space.  All this was then placed on Bella's Bestest Kraft cardstock base and the finished size is 5 inch square.
Thanks for looking.  Hope you have a great week.  And don't forget, this week we have a sketch challenge for Bellariffic Friday.  Oh and It's Emily's birthday tomorrow so she is have a sale - 25% off the entire shop, including sale items through Friday.  If you had a wish list going - now is the time to get it's Em's best sale of the year.  Use coupon code bellabirthday2013.  Don't forget to send her birthday wishes!
