Who Told The Little Birdie!

Good morning all & a very Happy Sunday to you!
It's time for a new challenge at The Crafty Pad & once again 
it's the A Team who are bringing you some inspiration!
This weeks challenge is
#170 Doodle It! We want to see doodles on your creation!!!
I'm not so hot on the doodle front I'm afraid!
Here's my card!

The image I have used is Molly Cat With Birdhouse
this little lady is what/who attracted me to The Crafty Pad a long time ago!
Funnily enough, this is the first time I've used her on a card!
When I think of this card, the song
keeps popping into my head!
I used a square card blank made from Linen Embossed cardstock.
I printed Molly onto the same cardstock & coloured
her up with a mix of promarkers & flexmarkers.
I used the flexmarker to dot some colour about around the image.
You can see it if you zoom in to the pic.
The DP's I have used are from my scrapbox & I have used a 
Martha Stewart Doily border puch for the decorative borders.
I also used some sheer ribbon to make a triple bow.

Just look at little Molly, too sweet to eat that little birdie,
she actually has something she want's to tell it!
We've all heard the expression, "A little birdie told me"
Now we know who told the little birdie, it was Molly!!
(One day I might tell you the secret!!)

I also decorated the inside of the card a little!
I feel it helps with the balance of the card & is so much nicer 
than just a plain old insert!
Thanks so much for stopping by! 
Now head on over to The Crafty Pad to see some awesome A Team Doodles!
