Have a BALL on Your Special Day - Double Trouble Challenge #11

Well this really turned out to be a Double Trouble Triple Challenge.  Twisted Sister and I were asked to be Guest Designers on Double Dare's partnered Challenge at The Crafter's Café and they provide an image for you to use and mine was a Santa Pup.  

Now, of course there was no problem with the Black & White + one additional color; but when Twisted Sister wanted us to "rev" up our engines, create a "Boys" card, and include their favorite "wheel-ie" toy, the question was "How would a Santa Pup fit in my project?"  

My initial plan was to create a birthday card for my husband because this year he got a new terra-cotta golf cart, his favorite toy.  Knowing my extra color would be terra-cotta it only made sense to color the hat with the same color and create a Fall golfing cap.  The Pup was just going along for the ride, picking up the balls as he rode along and dropping the ball nearer to the next hole.  I had a lot of fun challenging myself to meet all the requirements of Double Trouble's challenge and include the image...what do you think? 

Black and White + One Additional Color - Mine was Terra-Cotta

However, Black and White + One Color can also create some cute Halloween Cards

Design Team Members and Entrants from The Crafter's Café, please join us in this challenge and be aware that Double Trouble's optional twist is not necessary to enter; however, it does add fun and creativity to your project and additional chances for Double Trouble's random draw prize. The randomly selected winner of Double Trouble #11 will receive a prize. If you are in North America, you will receive their "Bag of Things" and if you are outside of North America, you will receive a monetary gift from a popular digital company!

There were a number of different golfing sentiments on this stamp so, so I just stamped away on the inside using black ink on all of them.  

If your project is an Autumn/Halloween card please find your way to my daughter's October challenge "Three Amigos Challenge #19" and enter there too for eligibility for a random draw gift at the end of the month.
