Polka Doodle......

Morning peeps, today is my first Dt card for the Polka Doodle challenge, we use products from Polka Doodles but you can join in with any of your favourite stamps and stash, I have to say I have never used Cds before for crafting so this is all a bit new to me, I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of images, papers, sentiments and embellishments you get to play with on them, over the coming weeks I'll be doing challenges using some of these Cds as well as the real cute whimsy stamps that Polka Doodles make,the fantasy house scene stamps are wonderful. Today's challenge is to create a Single Layer card using a minimal amount of embellishments, so I thought I'd do a Christmas card......well its only a few months away so I thought I'd make a start, I printed the sentiment straight onto the card and then added an image of a border of holly which I coloured with Prisma pencils, added some glamour dust to the berries and leaves and then added gold peel offs to the edges for a smidge more bling. I put red ribbon on the inside layer of the card for added dimension. The Cd that I used is called A Sundae of Seasons.....I've got a feeling that this is going to get used a lot.


Well it looks like it might be a sunny day today so fingers crossed, I'm looking forward to my next holiday in a weeks time.....well perhaps not as its a working holiday, laying a lawn, gardening, decorating, doing all the odd jobs that get left........I'm sure to squeeze in some crafting as well.
