The older I get...

Hi everyone, I'm here to share a card I've made for a very good friend's 50th Birthday. I couldn't resist this image from Bugaboo...

I've coloured using Copics, don't you just love Gus. The backing paper is Boofle and has glitter on all the dots. The backing paper on the panel is from the Travellight (WeRMemory Keepers) paper pack which came free with a mag some time ago. I've added a couple of golf ball shaped buttons, which my hubby kindly trimmed the backs off for me. The charm is very appropriate, it's from a golf charm pack and says 'Seek and ye shall find'. Here are some close ups...




 I've also decorated the inside to match, using the unglittered version of the Boofle paper...
 I would like to enter this for the following:-
Saturday Challenge - Milestone birthdays 
Here come the boys - recipe (3 papers, 2 buttons, 1 image) 
 Paper Crafting Journey - my sentiment exactly
Hooked on craft - cards for men
Cards for men - going digital
Make it Monday
Through the craft room door - anything goes

Thanks for visiting, I hope to see you again soon.

Happy crafting
