Just for you

     Our theme this week at The Kraft Journal is "Fabulous Finds" and boy could I make a list right now!  There are so many cool things coming out and so many new ways to use all that older crafty wonderfulness.  :-)  My main fabulous find on here is the doodling.  Now I know doodling has been around forever, but I have been seeing some cards lately on Fi's blog that are just so stinkin' cute with all that doodling that I decided to give it a try.  I've linked directly to one of her cards with lots of fun doodling, but you can scroll through her blog and find lots more.  You'll see a little more on another one of my cards this week, but this one has lots.  I love to stitch on my cards, but I think this looks just as good.
     Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock forms the base of the card as well as the sentiment, and punched flowers.  It also forms the top layer of the hinge flaps.  I cut two layers of chipboard hinges and glued all three together for a thicker raised look.  The focal image of the card was stamped on a Large Kraft Shipping tag and colored with Prismacolor pencils.  Love the look of Prismas on kraft, but I haven't quite figured out how to do the skin coloring correctly.
     For embellishments I include 7 Gypsies Gypsy Market and Victoria seam binding and button flower centers tied with Hang Tag String.
     Like I said, there are TONS of new "Fabulous Finds" out there so come play along and show us what you've found.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

    WOW, I'm in love with this card. So, so stinkin' adorable and I really love the white shading you did to ground that image. There's so much going on here, but it goes together so wonderfully. The raised hinges is a great idea, that really stands out.
    LOVE your brain, oh and the card. :)
