Today's Ways to Use It Challenge is entitled "Let's Play!" Julia asked us to design our cards around things you play...maybe sports, puzzles or games.
My card is also for Our Craft Lounge's Friday Sketch Challenge. This challenge is only its second week...you can read all about how to play on the OCL blog. A new sketch (OCLDT03) will be uploaded in the morning, but you still have lots of time to play OCLDT02...and if you play along, you will be eligible to win an OCL set! One winner will be drawn each month, so the more you play, the better your chances!
This week's sketch was a very simple one, just perfect for one of the images and sentiments from Golfing Gramps. I colored my image with Copic markers, cut and embossed it with nestabilities long classic and scalloped rectangles (passed through twice to shorten it to fit the image) and embellished with an Edwin Watts Golf tee tied onto a Basic Grey button with jute thread. The *green* (a challenge play on words) is a scrap of Basic Grey Nook and Pantry designer paper.
Edwin Watts Golf sponsors our church youth group's big annual fundraiser every year. They donate lots of big prizes which entice players to come to play and win...the proceeds fund an entire year of programs for our kids! They deserve a shout out for all they do for FIUMC youth!
