Golfing Ants

I've never played golf myself (except for some ill-fated putting lessons in H.S. Gym class), but with family in Arizona and Florida, we know plenty of golfers. This is my first time inking up this Ants on the Green set from G-Rated Rubberstamps:

The ants are heat-embossed in black, and the little ball is heat-embossed in a glittery white (I also added a border to it with a pen). I filled in some of the details with a glitter pen.

My mom sent me these Ant Buttons several years ago, and I've only used them once previously. I hand-stitched them onto the card.

The "scorecard" DP (and backing) is from Pebbles, Inc. and the green patterned paper is from Colorbök. I used Memento ink to stamp the sentiment (from my stash; I think it's from a Hero Arts set), and added some bright green Liquid Pearls for good measure. The corners are notch with a Marvy punch.

The scalloped circles were cut on my BigShot with a Spellbinders die; I trimmed the one on top to give it a "grassy" look. The green tulle is actually a large piece folded in half, and covered with a ribbon from my stash.
