Bloomin’ Lovely

ANYTHING GOES at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best this week.So a nice easy challenge leading up to Christmas and no excuses not to join in!

There’s a fabulous prize of a $10 Gift Certificate waiting for one lucky winner to spend at Digi Doodle Shop.Second and third places get a badge for their blogs and all three are in the running to join us as a Guest Designer if they wish.

Don’t forget to draw some beautiful inspiration from the DT’s creations while you’re there.

The 50% sale is still on until the end of the month so now would be a good time to stock up on some images.You also get 2 entries into the draw if you play the challenge using a Digi Doodle Shop image.

*Please note this will be the last challenge for this year as we’re taking a little break for the Christmas Holidays.The challenge will stay open for 2 weeks this time.We’ll starting up again on 6th January. Hope you will join us then.*

For my card I’ve used the gorgeous Girl Bear from Digi Doodle Shop.I’ve coloured her with Promarkers and used Glossy Accents on her eyes,nose and also on the heart and leaves.Her dress and headband have been paper pieced to give texture.I chose a ditzy print in a coordinating paper and the one on the headband actually has a linen effect although it’s hard to tell in the pic.

A closer view of the glazed parts.

This card is for my Great Niece’s first birthday.Such a special time for their family and a major milestone for their little one.Ahhh,I remember it well.

What with a Christmas card,New Home card and now a birthday one I’m sure they’ll be fed of receiving yet another card made by me!
