Karen's Doodles United Kingdom Challenge 24/3/10

Over at the Karen's Doodles United Kingdom Challenge this week they have a sketch.  I have used the cute picture of the tortoise and mouse having a cuppa in the garden.  Oh for Spring and then Summer to come!!!  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers.  For the border element I have used a piece of lace and coloured it with Tim Holtz's Faded Jeans Distress Ink Pad.  The card is finished off with some card candy, flowers, hat pin with bead and a sentiment off the computer.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Dimensions
Crafty Cardmakers - Spring into spring
Incy Wincy - Easter or Spring
Digital Tuesday - Happy Spring
Jacksonbelle - Easter/Spring theme
Stampin' Royalty - Get glittery
Fab n Funky - It's in the technique - I've chosen distressing along with using my new Tim Holtz distresser - very therapeutic - but try not to wear a black skirt when hacking up the card!!!
Cupcake Craft - Food and drink
Passion for promarkers - Springtime and an animal
Saturday Spotlight - Inspirational coffee
Paper Sundaes - Photo as inspiration.
