The Adamant Golfer - Focus MIM #108

I can't believe how fast the weeks are flying by now as we head for the end of the year. A new week and the start of another fab linky party at Make It Monday.
Again we saw oodles of wonderful cards and projects last week which makes it so hard to pick one to showcase each week.
Congratulations to Jen Leeflang on having your card featured this week and also to Desire for being the winning commenter.
This week  we are being sponsored by Digi Doodle Shop and you can see the fab prize they are offering at the bottom of  my post.
I was able to choose a design to work with and I found this golfing image that intrigued me. It's called The Adamant Golfer - Focus and you can find it here
This is what I came up with:

Front of Card- Centre step card - I altered dimensions to make a rectangular card to accomodate my rectangular image.

 Inside of Card
SU Early Espresso cardstock for the center step card ( I changed the dimensions of the original template to create a rectangular card to suit my image.
SU Crumb Cake cardstock
DP from stash (not sure where I got this one from, but it's been in my stash for a while!)
Nestie Die - Curved Rectangles
Image - The Adamant Golfer - Focus from Digi Doodle Shop
Row of Golfers is a stamp from SU set ~ The Back Nine
Sentiment is from SU set ~ On the Green
Copic Markers
SU Early Espresso inkpad,
SU  Ballet Blue inkpad
SU Certainly Celery inkpad
I cut a couple of the golfballs and tees from the DP and adhered to card to make them firmer and used as embellies for the front of the card.
Bling - from stash

I am entering this into the following challenges:
No Matter Which Challenge - Challenge #2 ~ Die Cuts and/or punches
Digi Designs Challenge Blog - Challenge ~ use more than 1 diecut or punch

It's a gorgeous card, love the crisp image and that fab diecut and bow!!!

Here's our sponsor for this week,

DigiDoodle Shop is the results of a mother and daughter’s love for the arts and crafts.  It was started a little over 3 years ago with a little more than 100 stamps, and has since then grown to almost 500 stamps.  Joy (the mother of this team) designs realistic images, while Judy (aka/daughter) loves the “fun side of life”, and create images with a cartoon flair.  Having these two complimenting styles have enabled
DigiDoodle Shop to offer a wide variety of stamps. 

The DigiDoodle Shop is giving away a $10.00 Store Gift Certificate to the lucky random winner!
Now it's your turn to start creating. Love to see your artwork over at MIM #108 and don't forget to visit some of the other blogs for your chance to win the prize on offer from Digi Doodle Shop.

    It's triggered by the sincerness communicated in the post I browsed. And on this article "The Adamant Golfer - Focus MIM #108". I was excited enough to post a thought :) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright.
