Double Doodle Challenges

I felt like doing some challenges tonight so I tried Splitcoast's Color Challenge for today (CC127, Blue Bayou, Sahara Sand, and Chocolate Chip), and I combined this with Beate's Fresh & Fun weekend challenge which is due tomorrow.
I love it when I can create a whole project using just one stamp set. This time I pulled out a set that I got at last year's Regional Conference, "Double Line Doodles." I haven't used this set much, but I just love the long paisley stamp. It's hard to tell but I adhered the scalloped "I just love you" piece with dimensionals to help it "pop out" a bit, and the circles around the bayou piece are doodled by hand with a chocolate chip marker. Here's the recipe:


Stamps: Double Line Doodles
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Not Quite Navy
Papers: Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip, Blue Bayou
Accessories: Double Stitched Bayou Ribbon, Scallop Punch, 1.25 inch circle punch, brown brad


I felt like making just one more card tonight before calling it quits, so here's what I came up with:

I guess I was in the "doodling" mood tonight because I used another doodle style set and did more doodling by hand arond the bottom of the focal image. Here's the recipe:

Stamps: Doodle This, Short & Sweet
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Not Quite Navy
Papers: Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip, Blue Bayou
Accessories: Double Stitched Bayou Ribbon, brown brad
