Golf - It Takes Balls

I love these Huge Woodware stamps - this one is huge Golf which comes with five additional sentiments. I've stamped the GOLF onto white card and cut out with a Nestie. I've then used Bundled Sage and Faded Jeans distress inks to frame it. There's a great tutorial for this on the Technique Time Tuesday blog as it's there technique of the month. The letters have been stamped and embossed with clear powder onto various snippets of card and paper and cut out and stuck onto the main card. The O is embossed with the Swiss Dots folder before sticking on. The backing papers are from a Crafts too pack which is a great pack for masculine cards although it is a little dark. The sentiment is from the same stamp set  and cut with a Nestie and again framed with the distress ink

I'm entering this into the following challenges
Technique Time Tuesday - Faux Frame Technique
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Snippets
Here Come The Boys - Sentiments Only
Cards For Men - Anything Goes
