Laura's Sketch #7

This card is for My Father in Law's birthday on the 7th September. The lucky so and so is flying off to Mauritius on Friday so I am popping it in the post to him tomorrow.

I used Monday's sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You. Both Laura & Kazan design some great sketches and they get well over 100 people taking part every week. I've not seen any other sketch site that gets as many as that so they are obviously very well regarded by the crafty community. I am just ovwerwhelmed by how many great cards are uploaded, they are very inspirational. I'm a bit late this week so won't be added to the list, serves me right for my tardyness.

The card is a textured one from Papermill, love filling those boxes. When I first started making cards I went to the Liverpool one on the train a couple of times. I managed to get the train tickets so cheap it was worth the travel and I have still got loads of the card left.

The papers are from Dovecrafts Masculine pack, HOTP cardmakers Earth tones and the speckled one is from the recent Making Cards for Men special edition as is the sentiment. The golf embellishment is from LMC and the ric rac was from Ebay some time ago.

As he is a very keen golfer I am sure he will love this but I bet he likes his holiday better !
