For this card I started with a blue green card front. I added a gray strip across the bottom and layered on a layered oval greeting (SU). I cut a piece of beautiful decorative paper and added it just above the greeting. I watercoloured the tulip image ( Melonheadz) in soft coordinating colours, layered it onto a rectangle of gray cardstock and mounted it to my card front using 3D foam tape. I usually like this image in very bright colours but it works equally well in soft toned down colours.

I have created two sets of doodle card kits as kids prizes for a family event this weekend!!
I downloaded the doodles from the internet, laid them out with birthday greetings in fun fonts on a quarter sheets in Corel Draw and laser printed them on white card stock. I combined the doodle elements with fiber, punchies for central elements, single layer inserts and have included 8.5" x 8.5" pieces of bond paper along with a folding template for the creation of handmade envelopes which will coordinate with the cards. I watercoloured mine but they could certainly be coloured with any medium - pencil crayons, markers, chalks, etc.
A few hours of fun in a bag!!
