Passion for Promarkers DT Doodleicious

I'm posting this up a bit late today as it's for my daughter Holly's 25th birthday today - Happy Birthday lovely!!  (She won't open it until this evening so I don't want her to see it on line first!!) The photo below was taken as part of a hen party very recently - they had a fab time, with the photos being taken by Rockabetty Studios who specialize in 50s style photo shoots.  Alix, the photographer also happens to be Nick's cousin's daughter - the girls had such a great day! (Click on the link if you want to find out more about Rockabetty!)

Back to the new challenge over at Passion For Promarkers today and the theme of Doodleicious has been chosen by our fab Shelly.  I felt a bit daunted by this at first, as my doodling always seems to look a mess, whereas I always love how other people use it!  Then I decided to do a sort of basic Zentangle frame around the image, which is by A Day for Daisies.  Holly loves this type of doodling so it was rather appropriate for her birthday card.  
I then decided to doodle some flowers which I coloured with my Promarkers and then cut round to layer them on my card.
The flourishes are a die and stamp combo from Paper Trey Ink which I embossed in white.  There's some Shabby White Frantage around the image and also on the Memory Box Heart. The LOTV sentiment is also given the white embossing treatment.  

Our sponsors for this week's challenge is Digi Stamp Boutique  who are offering the lucky winner their choice of 6 images!

You may have noticed that I'm struggling big time at the moment to do any blogging!  I'm mega busy at work, and we're away for the weekend  on Friday to what I'm sure will be a fabulous country wedding in the Lake District - my nephew  is getting married!  So I am just plain out of time at the minute - if anyone can let me know how they manage to work, make cards and blog, I would dearly love some tips!!

You can check out the rest of the fabulous cards by my PFP teamies here - lovely  they are!
