Karens Doodles UK - 8th challenge


Wednesday's here again, so it's time for another Karen's Doodles UK challenge, and this week we have an 'animal magic' theme. Nice and easy and there are loads of lovely Karen's Doodles animal images to choose from, so I hope lots of you will join in :o)

I've used the gorgeous 'Special Delivery' image available here, coloured with promarkers. The paper is K&Co, with coredinations cardstock, and I've machine stitched a border - I made a bit of a mess of it to be honest but most of it is covered up with the other bits on my card! I'm really determined to get the hang of the sewing machine, it won't beat me... ok so the machine is winning at the moment but I'll get there in the end! I've added some raffia lace from Bunny Zoes and ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts (white satin coloured with a promarker). The flowers were also plain white ones that I've shaped and coloured with promarkers, added a sparkly button from my stash and some leaves cut with a Woodware punch. Finished with a little tag stamp and a Papermania button.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
