FORE!!!

I was inspired today by the Digital Tuesday challenge which is 'Use your Scraps'. I created a card and a matching small gift using scrap bits of paper and card. Being a digital challenge, I have used a Bugaboo image from the A Kids View Men section.


 The border of the card was made using 1 inch squares to create a border. All the papers used are from the Stampin Up Chocolate Chip paper pack. I use so much of this colour that I had lots of small scraps that I trimmed down.



I printed out a few extra copies of the golfing image and decoupaged it up. Decoupaging is the theme this week at Cards for Men so I'm going to enter this card into that challenge too.


Here's a quick and easy topper made to fit onto an ATC bag! Again, I used scraps to complete this project. The 'golf balls' inside are actually sweets found at a Sugarcane.
