Karen's Doodles Netherlands Challenge - 29 March 2011

It seems such a while since I entered a Karen's Doodles Challenge.  I have been trying to use some images I've already printed off and coloured for some cards for the Docrafts Card for Life Appeal.  You can only use A6 cards and I know that stops a lot in making cards.  I only use A6 cards when I am making cards for the Appeal throughout the year.

Over at the Karen's Doodles Netherlands Challenge this week the topic is "make you own embellishments".  For my card I have used an aperture card I was given and put a scrap of backing paper behind.  I have coloured this cute bear with my Promarkers.  He's got a gorgeous array of flowers in his hands - wish they were for me!!  I have finished the card off with a peel-off sentiment, Stickles glitter glue, card candy and then I have made two flowers (cut with a scallop circle die-cut out of a book, inked the three layers with two shades of pink and the bottom layer is red, held together with a bread, all scrunched up and then Stickles added to the edges).

This card also fits the following challenges:
