Another Masculine Card with Designer Paper ~ CFC54

Two cards on my blog in ONE DAY!!! I was cleaning up after the last card and noticed the set Swingin' Day, which I haven't played with in a a long time. I have always used this set with solid papers only, but I thought our Grass Gingham might be cute. I usually reserve gingham for baby cards, so I had to move outside of the box for this one. But I LOVE the way it turned out! So much better than my last card!

All a•muse products used except embossing folder.
Stamp Set: Swingin' Day
Paper: Sugar, Grass, Grass Gingham
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Other: Cuttlebug embossing folder - Swiss Dots, 
Copic markers C3 and Y17, Pebbles Pearlescent Chalks

I pulled out my Copic Air Can to do a little airbrushing on the white cardstock so the golf ball would pop a little, but I couldn't find my sprayer. (Gonna have to grill the boys and see if they've been playing with mommy's toys!) Instead, I got out my chalks to blue up the sky a bit. It's got a slight shimmer to it, which isn't exactly masculine, but I know my man can handle it! ;o) I very lightly filled in the dots on the golf ball with C3 copic marker and popped it up on a dimensional. My 10 year old said, "Oooh! It looks like it's flying off the card!" You've got to love it when kids get your cards!
