Karens Doodles 10th challenge



This week's challenge at Karen's Doodles UK is a lovely sketch designed by Elaine. Sketches are always fun to work with aren't they, so I hope we'll see lots of you joining in with us :o)

I've used a cute Herbert Turtle image available here. Actually it comes in a set with candles and things that you can add to your main images, and I've (somehow!) merged the candle image with my cupcake one - I was very impressed with myself because it's the first time I've managed to do it, but as I'm not entirely sure how I did it, I probably won't be able to repeat it lol! I've coloured Herbert with promarkers with a touch of sakura clear stardust pen. The papers are MME, with pink linen cardstock from my stash. Pink jute ribbon from Bunny Zoe's, flat back pearls from stash and the sentiment is a Craftwork Cards one.

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