Delicious Doodles Challenges are back after our well needed holidays, complete with a whole load of new DT members - a REALLY talented bunch of ladies. Please make sure you've welcomed them and a bit of bloggie love is always appreciated.
The challenges have gone weekly, so even more chances for you guys to show us your wares.
The first challenge for this season is CELEBRATIONS.
My card was made with a duel purpose. A friend's granddaughter's first birthday was yesterday and she wanted to mark this milestone with a special card. Would I please make one for her. The colour scheme was set and it had to be cute with a puppy. Of course it also had to be child friendly. So no big, loose embellishments! This is the card that transpired. I followed the sketch from Sketches By Carly.
The image is, of course from Delicious Doodles - Westie's First. An obvious choice for me, given the request, coloured with promarkers. The "1" was coated with glossy accents and holographic glitter embedded in it so that it won't "shed". When that was dry, the image was then highlighted with distress ink.
The papers are from the Neighbourwood paper stack. (This has so many papers that are ideal for young cards). Matted onto dark pink/purple card. The same card being used to cut the letters out using my cricut. The flowers are glued on and brads added for the centres. The ribbon is from stash. It was harder than I thought to keep it all simple and child friendly. It's so easy just to add "just that bit more"
Looking forward to seeing the delights that come out of your crafty area peeps, - get linking - but only one entry per person please.
