Simply Create Too Challenge 15 - Dad's / Father's Day

It's time for another Simply Create Too challenge!  And with Father's Day just around the corner, the theme for the next two weeks is:

Dad's / Father's Day

I've used a digi image by Gordon Fraser - bought from here - and coloured it with Promarkers.  It's been cut out and I've made a double stepper card with an old Get Funky freebie cloud paper plus some greens from my stash.  I've actually used a Marianne Creatables icicle die but to me it looks a lot like grass when used the other way up!

I've got an Ellison die that has the little golf ball on so I cut that out a number of times and added them to the grass.  The word 'Dad' has been cut with my Sizzix Round A Bout alphabet dies and I made the golf flag (the word fore is crossed out and a 50 added).  This is for my brothers' girlfriends Dad and I hope he likes it!

Good luck with the Simply Create Too challenge - for more details on how to enter, pop over to the blog!
