Creative cottage # 13 - Linda's pick

Good morning girls hope you are all well. The weather here has been vile but it's meant to be warming up today and as I type the fog is clearing and the sun is coming out - hoorah !!!!

Well as it's wednesday here is my DT card for this weeks creative cottage challenge blog. The challenge picked by the lovely and very talented Linda is Fathers day.
I would like to thank Linda sincerely, who has saved me from my usual fate of running around the day before fathers day to scrabble a card together - this year it is done !

I would also like to thank tracy for the fantastic sentiments which are this months Creative cottage freebie so pop over and check them out.

My card this week was made using papers from the new summer mornings kit and also the something sweet kit and a digi from the Doodle palace. I coloured these cute bears in with my aquacolors using a swirling motion to try and give them a little texture, although I do have to be careful otherwise my printer ink runs.

The swirl is one of my newest buys - a sizzix die, cut using my bigshot. And my button is from stash.

The sentiment was resized, this is the beauty of digi's, and left plain - but you see the medal ? That is also a central design from one of the other digi's, enlarged and cut out with plenty of glossy accents added to the medal - I thougght afterwards how cute it would have been to glaze the whole thing and make it into a badge for daddy top wear but it was too late - maybe next year !!

I do hope you like it and join in with us at the creative cottage challenge blog this week x
