Its time for a new challenge over at Craft your passion and for me it's my first challenge as part of their wonderful design team.

This weeks challenge is: Add some doodles, that can be any doodles, (including faux stitching).

Our sponsors this week are Doodle Pantry - With a whopping $10 gift Certificate for the lucky winner. Doodle Pantry have some adorable images why not take a look?

I picked this really sweet image called 'Song Birdies'  - Along with the image you also get four sentiments to play with!

I just couldn't resist adding musical notes as my doodles, as the birds are all singing so happily :)
I also added a doodled Holly leaf and berrys as an embellishment, just to finish the card off.

The Christmas words paper is from an old digikit, (I can't remember which sorry) and I decided to use it for both of my patterned layers, I just made it smaller for the top layer so that it looked slightly different. I used this paper, as I thought doodling on the card made it seem more 'modern' and I thought this paper was quite 'modern' and fresh too.

The birdies were coloured using Promarkers and I tried to use a slightly different, more cartoony technique, however, I have spent all my time recently trying to blend so much, that to do harsher lines for this style was almost alien and I ended up half blending it a bit of a mix mash, but I was happy with how they turned out.

Do you like the way the image sits slightly out of the the frame it is in? The branches look a little 3D like this, I thought it was a nice effect :)

We would love for you to come join us this week over at Craft Your Passion - We can't wait to see what you create :)
