It's A Man Thing

I created this guy's birthday card using this adorable image I just won from Karen's Doodles. The image is called What A Swing.  This image was a perfect match to the it's a man thing challenge at Totally Gorjuss. The sketch that I used is from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  The base of my card is plaid card stock that I backed in brown.  Across the bottom I added a strip of olive green, tan and blue card stock. I cut across the bottom of the blue using scalloped scissors.  I added a brown ribbon.  I cut a rectangle out of blue card stock and backed it in brown.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils, cut it out in a rectangle and then backed it in brown.  I added three olive green pearls to the blue.  I also stamped the birthday sentiment right onto the blue.  I finished off the front of the card by adding a golf ball button to the ribbon.
I finished the inside of the card for this week's finishing touches challenge at Paper Sundaes. I added tan card stock to one side. To the other I added the plaid card stock backed in brown.  I cut a piece of white cardstock and backed it in olive green. I added a golf bag button.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
