Make It Monday sponsored by Delicious Doodles!

It's Monday and it's sunny and I decided this morning to take the day off work - woo hoo!!!  Better let someone at work know now...

Of course, as it's Monday, here is my card for this week's Make It Monday linky party...

 

Gorgeous image, huh?!  This week we are being sponsored by one of our regular sponsors Delicious Doodles who stock this beautiful On The Look Out. The image is so  soft and gentle that I decided to keep the card really simple with some subtle distressing - and no designer papers!

Hi Mary J

I hope you get to enjoy your day off today!

Your card is absolutely stunning, I love the woodgrain embossing of the lower panel, so perfect. The image is just beautiful and your soft colouring really gives a great feel to the card.

I really liked Dawn's card too, her layout is fabulous and the way she has coloured the panel behind the image really makes that cute teddy pop.
