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:-
