This is a cute image sent to me by my friend Kim from Cuppas..... I needed a fun birthday card for Chris and since he loves golf this was it to help him celebrate turning 35! Copics used for coloring, magnolia tree, golf ball is from a gift card I cut apart, Happy Birthday greeting is from Hero Arts, Papers are all from my scrap bin. Crystal Lacquer was used over the leaves for shine.
Inside verse reads: If your equipment gets old you can replace it!
His dad is enclosing a round or two of golf at a nearby resort for him too. Purple and gold colors were used due to LSU colors! GO TIGERS!!!!!
Thanks for looking!
