Krafty Golfer

The challenge this week at Sassy Cheryl's is to colour your image on kraft card stock. I have wanted to try this for a long time but was afraid the ink would smear. I was wrong, the ink does not smear but I need to spend more time playing with the colours. I use Prismacolors and they turned out much darker than they normally do when I colour on white card stock. I had fun with it though so I will practice and hope for a better result the next time.

This will make a great birthday card for my Son-in-Law so I have included a birthday verse inside. He may be a bit annoyed with the theme though because ever since he started his BBQ business, he is so busy in the summer that he has only golfed once a year if that.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
