Keep your eye on the ball - QKR #206 DT card

It looks like I took this challenge very literally!  This is Golfing Bear, a digital image from QKR Stampede.  I selected this QKR sentiment to go with it.  I am sure it refers to age, but I thought why not here?  I don't golf, but maybe there is someone who might have considered fudging on a score...!  I colored the image with chalk pencils, for a soft look, and hand cut the image to go right next to the grassy dp (Paper Studio) .  The oval and "golf balls" are die cuts.  I dry embossed the balls with the Swiss Dot EF and enhanced the dimples with glitter.  The card is 4.5 x 6.5.  My favorite shape for cards is rectangular because I like the flexibility of layouts - so many images fit well.  I also like the practicality - no extra postage as there is for square ones!
