Hole in one Hal - Father's Day

This is Hole in one Hal from Dr Digi. This is my latest DT post over at the Dr Digi blog. I've made this for Father's Day for the future Father in law.

I used 3 different papers from My Minds Eye Lime Twist range called Out of the Blue. Its one of my favourites for Men's cards and I am nearly running out - but I'm not sure its around anymore.
I fussy cut around the digi image and die cut two scalloped circles one in Salt Bazzill Swiss dot and one in black which I used to mount everything. I used a Friskars edge punch on the Orange paper and also on the black but staggered it so that it created an mounted edge.
I die cut the Happy and Day from the same black bazzill card stock and used Amy Tangerine - American crafts Thickers to spell out Fathers.
I used 3d foam to attach Hal to the die cut and also to attach 3 white card candi from Craftworks Cards that reminded me of Golf balls! I also added a little glaze to his sun visor.

To make this card I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. 
Skin - Antique white, blush, soft peach, coral & spice.
Hair, golf bag & Shoes - Ice Greys 1 - 5
Top - Soft Peach, Mango, Peach & Orange.
Shorts - Capri Blue, Midnight blue & Navy Blue.
Clubs - Ice Grey 2, 4 & 5

Socks & Bag strap -  Lime Zest, Lime Green & Pear Green.
I also outlined the whole image with Frozen Lake.
