I made this card for the Year End Countdown challenge to use the distressed newspaper background technique. My hubby and I used to eat donuts or bagels with the paper pretty regularly on Sundays, until recently, so this pairing just spoke to me. I used a marker to just ink up the outlines of the donuts - this card is for a man and I didn't know if the sprinkles were too 'feminine'. LOL! I don't know if you can tell, but being inspired by the use of the Stardust pens I decided to try Sakura's Glaze pen on the donuts instead of Crystal effects to make the frosting on the donuts shine - it worked!
This card is one of two that I made for a recovering police officer who was injured in the line of duty. If anyone else is interested in sending him a card to lift his spirits please PM my friend Barbie 50 here on Stamp TV, she can give you the address. I believe his favorite hobby is fishing if you are interested.
Thank you to everyone who takes the time to look at my card. I hope you all have a happy & healthy new year!
