November Birthday

I made this card for my father-in-law (an avid golfer) for guessed it, his birthday. I used the November birthday circle and calender stamps from Bluebirdflats. She has also done the stamps in September and October so far and I have used both of those months to make special birthday cards also. The background paper is self-made with the Men's Golf stamp from Bee Cee Artistic. I re-seized the elements of the stamp separately and then staggered them to create the background I wanted. Then using the same stamp deleting the golf ball and copying the golf club to have a golf bag and two golf clubs to place on the front of the card. A quick text to my mother-in-law and I am able to make the golf bag the color of the one he owns and uses (it's all in the details...for me anyway). And the other details for this card are: images were colored with Copic markers, The black paper is Stampin' Up and the kraft paper is from the Paper Studio.   
Just a note: I created the backgrounds needed on the other cards I made using the Bluebirdflats stamps but unfortunately I did not get pictures before they were given away. It has been fun making my own back grounds using different elements. I'm sure it is something that I will continue to do. It's a challenge and I have enjoyed rising to. That's all for now so until next time take care.
