Golf Anyone?

Hi Stampers!
Before I show you my card I want to let you know that Stampin' Up! has added many new items to the clearance rack that you might want to check out! There are some of the circle punches I used today among the offerings.
Today we're off to a birthday party for a dear friend who is turning the big 5-0.  He is a golf enthusiast, and as I am not, surprisingly, I do not have any golf stamp sets so I needed to improvise.  Here is the first card I made for him:
The ball is pretty important in this card!  I used the 1 3/4" circle punch and then I used the texturz plate with the Big Shot to give it the dimples.  I hand cut the hills (and ran them through the crimper for texture), the grass, and the Flag.  The clouds are from the cupcake punch, lightly sponged to give them a bit more depth, and the greeting is from my favorite hostess set.
After I finished this card, set it aside for this evening, and started doing something else, a new idea popped into my mind and I had to go back to the craft room and try it out.  Here is take two:
The look is cleaner, which I like, but you still have the feel of the flag with the background, and the ball is in the hole.  Here is the inside:
I made the tee using a slim piece of card stock and punch the oval punch on either side.  I guess I'll let my husband choose which card he likes best!
