Celebrate With Flourish-Golf Bag Birthday Card

I made this for my brother-in-law today since it is his birthday.  I shouldn't have waited until the day of to make it but it was really simple.
I used my new DCWV Linen Closet stack for the stripe background and the blue of the bag.  The brown and gold were scraps from the scrap drawers.  The ivory card is The Paper Company from Michaels.  The sentiment is from Inkadinkado "just saying" inked with brown ink from M's (don't remember brand).
I cut all four layers of the golf bag at 3 3/4 from the new Celebrate with Flourish Cricut Lite cartridge that I purchased last week.  I cut the shadow and third piece both in brown.  I glued the blue and smaller brown piece together and then cut off the clubs.  I wanted the clubs to look like they were coming out of the bag and also wanted them to be metallic instead of matching the color of the bag.  My card is 9 x 6 1/4 (folded is 4 1/2 x 6 1/4), the striped layer is 4 1/4 x 6.  I used a corner rounder on the card and the background piece because I thought the card looked funny with just the striped paper rounded.  I inked the edges of the golf bag and striped paper with brown ink.  I started to add ribbon and or twine but realized it was for a man so he wouldn't care if that was missing.
