Goldie Golfer

Hello everyone!  While you are looking at my card... I am attending the National Scrapbooking Day Crop at the OCS store in Bolton!  If you happen to be joining me, be sure to stop by and say hello :o)  I am from a family of golfers, so when I see golf themed cardmaking supplies, I get a little excited!  I am using Goldie Golfer from Art Impressions, whom I love - I especially like her rather arrogant pose on the golf green:
I may have squealed out loud when I was viewing Lora's preorders for Memory Box dies this spring, and I spotted this little Golf Club Landscape die... see the little golf flag up on the hill?  Yup, had to have it. 

It's pretty rare for me to not use any patterned paper on a card, but as I wanted to create a little scene, I just used some die cut clouds, the landscape die and I hand cut a golf green for her to stand on.  Another new gadget in my craft room is the Gift Bag Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers, so I used it to make a little gift bag to hold a sleeve of golf balls.  (You can find the WRMK punch boards in the OCS store here!)  It took just a few minutes to make, using just a 7" x 11" piece of cardstock - and voila! I have a matching gift bag.

Don't forget that our May Challenge on the OCS blog is "Anything Goes + an Embellishment", any stamped image is fine, just no digis please! I am practically embellishment-challenged, since I have a pretty clean style, but I managed to sneak a couple of blue glass dots onto my card today!
