Favourite Card Shape with Polkadoodles

Good morning it's time for a brand new challenge over at Polkadoodles and this week it's a favourite card shape.  Now to be honest my all time favourite is a square, they are easy to make and seem to be popular with people who receive them but I decided to go with another favourite and I made an easel card with the twist of it being a round one.
I made this card for the launch of the Octavia  Frosted Winter collection but haven't shared it with you because I was away at the time.  I used a coloured image but printed onto matte photo paper which gives a super rich colour.  I cut the snowflakes out on my Cameo and they are from Festive Hollybobs I think.  I have used lots of glitter and behind the silver ribbon is  little bit of spiders web.  The sparklers in the centre of the flowers are from The Hobby House but lots of people sell them.
Check out the challenge blog and see what the rest of the team have made, hopefully they will inspire you to join us and don't forget there are prizes to be won.

Ribbon and Lace with Digi Choosday

Well I'm back from my jollies and have just noticed a fab discount code on the Digi Choosday blog it is only available for one day but it's a huge 33% so I guess it's well worth a look.
For my card I've used a few different bits from more than one Polkadoodles collection but as you can see they all work well together, the digi is Odella Heart which I've coloured with my new Lyra pencils and I have to say I am in love with these and I'm so glad I invested in them.  The striped paper is from the Winston Collection and the blue from the Octavia Collection.  I have used a little frayed burlap and a little bit of cream lace then added a few flowers and a sentiment.

Shabby Chic with Polkadoodles

Good morning and as it's Friday it's time for a new challenge over at Polkadoodles. This time it's Shabby Chic that has been chosen and sometimes I'm at a loss for what to do for these types of challenges but hopefully I've not made a total mess of this one.

I printed a couple of sheets of DP from the Rosebud Collection and if this is one you've missed then I recommend that you check it out as there are some truly lush papers hiding away within the collection.

I tore one of the sheets and layered together to give a bit of interest and then put this onto the other paper which is printed in the same tones. The die cut is also the same as the backing paper, the sentiment is one I did on the pc and then cut it with the centre of the die.  The lace is some I bought off the internet and the flowers are from Wild Orchid, the flourish is cut from a tattered Lace die and coloured with a Graph'it pen.

Things with Wings at Polkadoodles

Good morning, it's Friday so that must mean it's Polkadoodles time. This challenge started last week so I'm here with a little bit of inspiration for you for our Things with Wings challenge.

I needed a New Home card and of course Twiggy and Toots were perfect for our young couple's first home together.
I was asked for the card with very little notice so I've used a pre coloured image from the collection but if time wasn't pressing then I would have used the digi but it's great to have the choice.

I have used two papers from the collection and I love the way they look together.  The trees were cut out on my Cameo and layered onto the front and the lace is a great match and just a little bit of something extra.
This is what I used
