BasicGrey Challenge 36 - Doodling

Hi everyone, Saturday and time for another BasicGrey challenge. 
From the blog:
"This week we would love to see some doodling on your creations, this can be any type of doodling you can think of so let your imaginations run wild :), but please remember to use at least 1 item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creations :)

Now please remember that we will be closing the blog down next week to completely update and re - vamp it, so this will be the last challenge here on BasicGrey challenges as you know it :), we wont be able to announce here when we will be re - opening so keep an eye on the DT blogs for the news :)"
Hope you can join us this week, my DT friends have come up with some fabulous inspiration as always for doodling ideas, they're all so creative.

I've doodled dots all around the scalloped edges of my card, added a layer of BG Ambrosia paper where I've distressed all the edges, a scalloped circle die cut nestie frame and the image which is by Penny Black from the clear stamp teddy set and is watercoloured with distress inks. The image is also cut out with the plain circle nestie, doodled on the edges and I've drawn in some birds too. The sentiment is from a Papermania sentiment set, also cut out with nestie circles and then tucked beneath the horizontal panel. Added some stardust stickles and pretty buttons to finish. Enjoy your Saturday and see you tomorrow with my Colour Create card. Chris x

This is so sweet Chris and I love the way you've circled the buttons. This is such a sweet bear too, another one I haven't seen before.
Poor you having plastering done, it really is vile isn't it. We live in a very old house so we've had a lot of it to do - worth it in the end but the flippin dust gets EVERYWHERE!!!
