For the Man/boy in your Life

We want to thank all of you who participated in the recent Lexi's Creation Challenge: Black and White and one other color. What awesome entries we had.
Our current challenge, for the next two weeks, is for the man/boy in your life. Here is my card:

I chose to design a Father's Day card for the man in my life.
The card design is a Stair Step Card, you can easily find a template with instructions on Splitcoast Stampers. It is one of the easiest cards to make and I have to admit that I do use this design often. I have not colored too many images lately and really enjoyed coloring this darling image from: Lexi's Design Studio. I think that the green grass DP brings it all together. The golfer image was cut from a Spellbinder's die then I used a little artistic leeway and cut it down to fit the card design. It was backed with the green CS and the edges were distressed. The edges of the grass DP were also distressed.

Materials Used:
DP: Michael's
Image: Lexi's Creations
Golf ball on the tee and golf shoes: free clip art
"Happy Father's Day" sentiment: computer generated
"You're The Best" image: Fiskar stamp
Distressing Ink: Tim Holtz
Coloring: Copic Markers
