Dude Time Doodles Challenge 13 - Free Sketch & Theme

Welcome to another Dude Time Doodles challenge! The first Wednesday in the month is a sketch challenge, but this is one with a twist! You can pick your own sketch but you need to include a flower (or two) and it needs to be a masculine card!

This challenge is sponsored by Raindrop Echo Designs who produce the most wonderful sentiments and offer freebies too! As part of the Dude Time Doodles Design Team I got the chance to pick a sentiment set to use with my Dude!

I've used the Amongst the Stars set (one sentiment has been used on my card) alongside Gary Giftbearer who I've coloured with Promarkers. I am rapidly becoming a big fan of Ann's work as I always struggle with sentiments!

I've kept printed papers (Sundae of Seasons from Polkadoodles) to a minimum as I liked the look of the dark card which I've doodled a white gel line around the edge. The charm is from a really naff 'silver' necklace I bought from the Poundshop a few weeks ago for £1 which I intended to break up and use all the charms on it! The string is also from the Poundshop (3 balls for £1!)

I've dotted a blue gel line around the sentiment (cut with a Nestie) and the image (drew round the Nesties for this one!) and that's it!

Hope you can join in with the challenge this week - for more details and how to enter, click HERE! Good luck!
