A good walk, spoiled

Mark Twain once described golf as "A good walk, spoiled" and I think it has been THOROUGHLY spoiled for this grumpy old man from The Grumps, who features on the CD The Best of La Pashe 2014. He is also available as a decoupage download, although of course that way you won't get the super-versatile background paper which would be great for all kinds of sport and garden themed cards. The CD and download are both available from La Pashe.

The card is a 15cm square gatefold card, and I wanted to add some golf-themed embellishments, but didn't have anything suitable. So I made the flag by colouring a cocktail stick with distress ink, pushing it through an oval of brown card to make the "hole" and then stickjing white paper around the other end and cutting it into a flag. You could add a number to the flag if the card is for a special birthday.

The golf ball is a punched circle of white card, embossed with the "Swiss dots" Cuttlebug folder but used back-to-front, so the dots go inwards like the indentations on a golf ball. I smudged some green ink on it because on such a wet, miserable day, I'm sure the ball would get covered in grass stains!
