Doodle Dumb!

 Doodle Palace Challenge #9 It sure pays to read instructions!  Here I was beefing my way through Sheryl's Challenge to create a Thankyou card using ribbon and a specific texture technique..... 'finished' I said, photo click, crop, upload.... upon reading the challenge again, I find I've done it wrong!  Eeeek!  The challenge was to use scrunched up plastic wrap and ink as a background texture technique.  Well, I went ahead and completed my card using BUBBLE WRAP instead.  I shall call this the Bubble Head technique. Anyway... I'll enter it in the challenge... maybe in the 'what not to do' category ... ha ha ha...

I textured chalk inks onto white CS, mounted on blue, and on a pink cardbase.  I added a multicoloured lace, and a ribbon threaded lace.  I have hand stitched in crocheted flowers and a Thank You epoxy tag, and continued stitching around the card.  I finished off with a Magnolia image, coloured with Twinkling H2Os accented with Stardust Pens.
Off to bed now.... goodnight all!

Thank you for doing the challenge - in fact you must have ESP because at first when I wrote the direction - I had written bubble wrap or plastic kitchen wrap - so not to fret!

Your card is adorable!!!
