Anyone for Golf?

I took one look at the new sketch over at Sketch Saturday and thought GOLF BALLS!  A friend of my son will be sixteen soon and he is a golf fanatic so I have made this card for him.

The papers and toppers are all from my Polka Doodles Not for Girls CD and the base card stock is some brown that I got from Handy Hippo in their sale.  The circles were all cut with a Spellbinders Standard Circle die, I cut the circle mats by hand because I always think the next size die is a bit big for mats.  The number 16 is made from some foam numbers that I have coloured to match with ProMarkers and the buttons and twine are from my stash. The only other equipment that I used was my EK Success Border Punch.

I have kept the inside of my card quite simple

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Phindy's Place Challenge 92 - Round & Round
Crafty Ribbons Challenge 12 - One for the Men or Boys
Hotshot Crafts Challenge 4 - One for the Boys
Celebrate the Occasion Challenge 49 - Anything Goes Birthday
CES Challenge 72 - Lots of layers -3 or more!
Sketch Saturday - Sketch

Thank you for looking.
