Oldies but Goodies!

Hello peeps! Well I've finally had time to make a card this week... and post it on my blog (that's a rare occassion at the moment). Anyway, I hadn't used my Penny Black stamps for ages so I dusted a couple off... the little bear stamp is one of the very first stamps I bought from Happy Stampers (who sadly don't trade anymore)! I bought some downloadable polka dot papers from Pink Petticoat this week (obviously because I don't have any papers so I really NEEDED them) and at 3am when I couldn't sleep I got up and made this card! I have to say I don't think my o/h was too pleased when the noise of the paper trimmer woke him up in the middle of the night :$

Have you ever thought "my card is missing something but what... it looks blank"... well that's what happened with me here... I tried buttons, ribbon more flowers but nothing looked right so I decided to doodle and I have to say I kinda like the effect, maybe I'll be doing more doodling in the future! Anyway I'm entering my card for a couple of challenges...
