Good morning folks, I've got lots of exciting news to share this morning! I was over the moon when the lovely Nikky Hall asked me to join the Polka Doodles DT, and it took me about a millisecond to say yes lol. So today I'm sharing my first DT project for the new challenge over at Polkadoodles where the theme is to use your scraps to make a birthday card.
Now as a Polka Doodles newbie you'd think I didn't have too many scraps but I soon remedied that as I almost melted my printer with all the gorgeous bps from Nikky's fab cds so I'd got a heap of projects ready to put together and a heap of scraps too. For this card I've used the beautiful Pretty Sweet CD, it has the most scrummy bps and the images are just adorable. I made a kind of patchwork effect with some of the scraps, adding faux pearls in the corners and used peach card to mat and layer. The focal image is coloured with Graph'It markers, apart from the hair I just used the skintones to colour her dress. I looooove these pens! I die cut the image with nesties and stamped around the edges with flowers and foliage stamps from the clear stamp set 'Be Neighbours'.
I created a flower by die cutting some more scraps of backing paper and layering them up with some netting fabric flowers cut with the same die (tattered florals. I've added a Doodle dew drop to the centre of the flower. The sentiment is also from the CD, Nikky's cds have the most fab sentiments!. To finish off i've added a little seam binding bow, a button and some bakers twine.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
