Delicious Doodles Challenge # Get Well/ Cheer 'Em Up Card

Morning folks, it's time for a new challenge over at Delicious Doodles and this week we want you to make a get well /cheer 'em up card. The lucky winner will receive 5 digital images of their choice from the Delicious Doodles shop. Don't forget, ANY images are acceptable, it doesn't have to be a Delicious Doodles one, but if you do happen to use one of our images, then you get TWO entries into the draw! Good luck and we'll look forward to seeing your creations.

Here's the card I made for your inspiration, I hope you like it!


The card base was die cut from white card using my new Sizzix Bird House Die.  I've covered the base with some wood effect papers from my Pad of Matters and then scored the plank effect with a Marth Stewart Scoreboard. To enhance the grooves I've rubbed Walnut Stain Distress Ink into them with a cotton bud. The images are Little Birdy and Bee & Flower from Delicious Doodles. They've been coloured with Promarkers and decoupaged. I've added Glossy Accents to the bird's beak and the centre of the flower. The bee's wings have been coated with Stardust Stickles. The sentiment is handwritten.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Creative Cottage - Shaped cards 
I ♥ ProMarkers - KISS
Design Dollies - Freehand something 
Top Tip Tuesday - Sentimental
Stamps R Us - Shaped card
Aly's Sunday Challenge - Things with wings

  1. Really terrific. I had to look really close to make sure it really wasn't wood.
