Doodle Pantry New Releases for May

There are over 15 beautiful digital sets being released this month at Doodle Pantry. Laurie created several sets that can be used for those masculine cards that we always seem to need. I thought I'd share two cards I made using the Buffalo and Caribou Set and the Classic Cars 2 Set.

If you enter this month's Challenge (DPDC46) and use any Doodle Pantry image (not just a sentiment), then you'll receive the Classic Cars 2 Set for FREE. The Challenge is open later today and runs until May 24. Check out the Doodle Pantry Blog for Challenge guidelines and more details. 

I used DSP from the set and the color image, although went over the image with Copics (I tend to do this a lot~mainly because I'm not as proficient in coloring as I wish I was).

I carried the card design to the inside also. I think I may add an additional sentiment . . . maybe "You're a Classic" or "You're never to old to have fun."  Depends on who I give it to.

I'm entering the above card in Bugaboo's Stella Says Sketch Challenge #208. I turned the sketch sideways.

The Buffalo and Caribou Set is FREE with any other purchase until May 24th. Buy any set, old or new, and you'll receive the Buffalo and Caribou Set for FREE.  

My husband has been sick for several weeks and I wanted to make a special card for him--he doesn't get too many for some reason. He laughed when I gave it to him; I'm just thrilled that he actually "got" it and thought it was funny and nice.  I used DSP from the set, but the sentiment is my own and computer-generated. 

I used the color image, but unintentionally lightened it too much, so a lot of the coloring is my own using Copics.

Since this was a get well card for hubby, I added that sentiment to the inside.

Be sure to check out the Doodle Pantry store (click here) to see all the new releases this month ~ I'll feature a couple of them throughout the month on my blog. And stop by the Doodle Pantry Blog for all the details on this month's Challenge.
