Rough Day?

I'm not a golfer. I will be honest, I went to the driving range once and only once with my husband.......and let's just say I'm not a golfer.

One of the golf terms I hear often when some of my family has been out golfing is that their ball went "into the rough" meaning it is in the trees or tall grass or both. Either way..........the ball did not end up on the green. 

Personally, I think I would be in the rough the whole time....kinda like Golfer Glen from High Hopes Stamps is on this card. 

Yes, my dry sense of humour is apparent on this one tee hee...

I kept the layout simple so the focus is on Golfer Glen and his rather bad day of golfing and my "play on words".

I embossed the trees on cardstock and then cut out where the sky would be and put some cloud paper behind it so you can see it through the trees. 
Glen's sexy striped pants are paper pieced and he is fussy cut and popped up with pop dots. 
The grass was glued on in the background and then a couple pieces on the front to make it look like he is surrounded.
