Card No. 2 - Polkadoodles Design Team Challenge

So I made Card No. 2 when I received some lovely downloads from Nikky Hall to say Welcome to the Team! The backing paper and images are from the Pickmix 2 CD Rom. I printed out the backing paper and matted it on black card. Then resized the button, punched the holes out in the middle of the button and threaded some brown satin ribbon through the holes and then cut out 4 circles and put them over the button holes and then backed it in black. Printed out the cute gingerbread couple, holly and sentiment and then added a few dew drops for the holly berries.

My First Design Team Challenge Cards for Polkadoodles

This was my first card I created for the Design Team Challenge. I used the Pretty Tuff CD Rom from Polkadoodles using the Casey image and the footballs from the embellishments. Dowloaded the background paper from the Candy Doodles CD Rom in the Candy Floss section. Matted and layered the backing paper with a piece of gree card from my crafty stash, cut a Spellbinders decorative circle out of the green and then embossed it with my dotty folder. Added a sentiment from one of my other Polkadoodles CD Rom (can't remember which one now). So there it is!

Flatfriends DT November Challenge

Hi there folks! It has been a while since I posted.  October was crazy for me! Moved house! Anyway, back to normal now and my craft room is looking good and very workable! So here is my November Challenge card for Flatfriends Design Team. The challenge was using Spots and Stripes, which are my favourite combination! So using papers printed from the Paper & Pen issue No. 2 from Polkadoodles CD and using my new Spellbinders die, cut a frame, edged it with some ink. Coloured my Emma Canning image with Promarkers, added a little glitter and liquid accents to the ballons.  Finishing it off with a polka dot bow and another swirly Spellbinder die. I love the colours.  I think it turned out quite well. Hope you like it.
