Doodle It!

It's time for a new challenge at The Crafty Pad and this week the theme is 'Doodle It', well as those of you who know me will realise - I do not do doodling - so this one was not easy for me.

This is the card I eventually made:

I used two of the images from The Crafty Pad 'Dress Form Trio' and the sentiment is from The Crafty Pad 'Sewing Sentiment Tickets' set.  The backing paper is from Debbie Moore's Shabby Chic Haberdashery CD and the card stock is Onyx Stardream from Joanna Sheen.  I have distressed the edges of the papers, images and sentiments with weathered wood Distress Ink and added a seam binding bow and some buttons to embellish.

I have also decorated the inside of my card with the same papers:

This week we are sponsored by MeiFlower

who are offering one lucky winner a £20 voucher to spend in their online store.

So get out your pens and add some doodling to your project - it can be some faux stitching, some scribbles - anything you like - as long as you take a pen to your creation somewhere.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
