This card makes me think of my dad. The fact that he would have turned 64 on his birthday a couple of weeks ago coupled with the second anniversary of his passing on May 30 and the looming celebration of Father's Day, he has been on my mind.
He LOVED to golf!!! So, in addition to being for today's F4A challenge "Opposites Attract", this is also in honor of my dad. Love you, Dad!! Miss you soooo much!!
Thanks for lookin'! :)

Wendy, I wish I could give you a big hug, it's no wonder you miss your dear Dad so much, he sounds like a wonderful person. You've made an absolutely fabulous card in tribute to him, the opposite colors are striking and dramatic - I like the sketch! : ) And the golf tee's (is that what you call them?) are a really clever embellishment.

What a wonderful card! I love all the dp and the border punch; they go so well with the image you used! I am so sorry for your loss, but this is one way of saying "thanks" for being a great Dad! ((Hugs))
