Leaving card for Paul

Another leaving card for another work colleague ... this time a golfer!
I've used Retired Raymond from High Hopes - coloured with promarkers and paper pieced trousers ... why do golfers have such a rare taste in fashion???  No 'normal' folk would be seen dead in trousers like these!
I added some flower soft for grass.  I wish I'd reversed my green panels, but hadn't planned my card properly and the black sparkly peel off letters were a last-minute decision, and probably would have looked better on a lighter cardstock.

  3. I like the peel-off letters on that background, I think they look good! And I agree, golfers seem to have no fashion sense when it comes to trousers, checked trousers were fashionable in the 70s when I were a lass, but even then they looked naff lol!

    This is a great card for a golfer, the image is just right, and I love your checked background paper, too! An excellent card for a man!!

    love Mags B x
