Doodle, Doodle, Do! - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Happy Friday!

I'm sharing a card I made as Guest Designer for the Daring Cardmakers Challenge this week. The theme was to add a doodle. I'm forever doodling! I think I started when I was at school, I used to doodle whilst doing my homework or revising.....thankfully, I still passed my exams!


My doodle was inspired by the intricate henna designs that I love having applied at special occasions like weddings. I've used my trusty Fiskars punches and a sheet from the Trimcraft Love Story pad.

In the past I've doodled frames on cards but never had the urge to do anything larger. This challenge made me use a skill (if you can call it that!!!) that I wouldn't normally use but I'd certainly use again. 

Thank you for looking and any comments are much appreciated.

Love the pink and black together on this gorgeous card. The doodled edge takes your eye to the central heart, fabulous.

Hi don't know how but I'm so pleased you were on my list to confirm for friends on Facebook. This is this first card of your I've seen and I think it's great. Thankyou for requesting a friend request. I'm sure you will be a lot of inspiration to me as I've only been crafting a month. Love you doodles too ☺
