Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge #53

     This is my last card for the Digi Doodle Shop's Best Design Team.  Judy and my teammates have been an absolute dream to work for and with and I will miss being a part of this fantastic challenge blog.  However, change is inevitable and I have some things coming up in the future that will require quite a bit of time so I needed to free myself from some of my online obligations.
     For this card I have used one of the recent new additions to the Digi Doodle Store "Special Delivery".  You'll see that several of my teammates also picked this stamp to use for their cards this week.  I just think he's fabulous.  He definitely has attitude!  Wonder if he's related to Gordon Ramsay?
     I used Copic markers to color him and I never could get his apron to look like I wanted it too.  I wanted it to be dark but not solid black and I just couldn't get it right.  Practice, practice, practice.
     The challenge theme this week is Birthdays so we hope you'll link up your birthday creations for a chance at a surprise prize.  Since it's Digi Doodle Shop's 1 year anniversary, Judy is giving the top three winners EACH a prize!  WOOHOO!
Happy Thursday!

Hi Tracy,

I love this! The coloring, of course, is fantastic, and the way you have it layed out just really makes it look 3-D. Thank you, sweetie, for all your love and hard work!

Tracy, so sorry you're leaving :-( Though - I'll follow your blog with interest and hope we'll "meet" again somewhere in the blog-space!
The card is awesome - very simple and I just LOVE that image - used it once but will definitely use it much more times!

What a fab and fun card Tracy! I'm sure Digi Doodles is very reluctant at having to let you go! And oh, don't worry about the cook, yours is MUCH more friendly looking than grumpy Gordon ;-)
