Think Happy, Be Happy - Birthday Card

Welcome to this week's Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #177. Please head over and check out the other Design Team inspirations and join us in this week’s challenge using Peacock, Crystal Blue, Whisper and White Daisy.  You have until Thursday, January 28, 2016 to create and link up your project…hoping for your participation.

A Birthday Card for my husband's 75th Birthday.  He's a golf enthusiast so I made a card to include a golfing gift certificate in the pocket on the front of the card.  The colors seemed fit for a masculine card and the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #143 seemed fit for a gift card.

This card also was a good fit for the Heart2Heart Challenges Monday, January 18 "By the Number Challenge".  Click on each of these challenges to see what the Design Teams have created and the other entrants inspirations.

My Cricut was quite busy with this card and most of the images had two or three glued layers and then adhered to card with 3D Thin Foam Tape.  For the golf balloons I added Baker's Twine, and on the club I put 75 for my husband's 75th Birthday.  The panel under the Club was raised with 3D Thin Foam Tape so a Gift Card or money could be added.

This photo shows the layering or dimensions of the Balloons, Club and Gift Card Holder.  Cut Sentiment and directly glued to cardstock.

The inside of the card was another Cricut cut on the Ball and Tee which I originally was going to use on the front of the card; but then decided to use it to finish off the inside corner.  Stamped Sentiment,
distressed edge and framed it.

Being an avid golfer myself I really love this card! You did a great job of combining two of my favorite challenges--AHSC and Color Dare. I just may have to replicate this one for my golfing friends=--hope you don't mind. We're so happy to have you on the Color Dare Design Team!
