OLW124- Doodled Up

Welcome to another week for the OLW challenge (One Layer Wednesday).  This week the challenge is:

Doodled Up- add doodling to your card!

Doodles are fun, I think they can add a touch of whimsy to your card.  You could doodle a frame; stamp an image and enhance it by adding doodles; stamp a sentiment and doodle all around it.  Let your imagination soar.  So here's what I did with my card. 
First, I masked around the center area so I could sponge on Distress inks in the open area to give a sunny glow.  I removed the masks, stamped the sentiment and the circles.  Lastly I doodled a frame around the edges and added the twine and pearl.  I am adding my card to the challenge at Moxie Fab; Create Your Own Background paper. 
Hope you get a chance to play along with us this week. Here are all the deets:

OLW124 Rules

1. Create a one-layer card.  That is defined as a single layer of card stock folded in half. No other layers      

2. Make a card that has doodling on it in some way.   Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum and
    NO ADDITIONAL LAYERS of card stock.
3. Post your card online and link it to the InLinkz button underneath.  If you link to your blog, please link to  
    the specific post, not your blog’s main page.
4. HAVE FUN! I am looking forward in seeing what you create!
