Swirls and flourishes with Polkadoodles

 Hello again I'm here with a new card for the latest challenge at Polkadoodles which is Swirls and Flourishes this time.

I decided to use the lovely Winnie Sugar Sprinkles and make a fairly simple card.  I used one of the pre-coloured images which I cut out with a small white edge, I used some Pinflair gel to raise it up a little.  The backing paper is one of my favourites from the collection, I have used it a few times and this time I have edged it with distress ink. I had a small piece of another paper from the same collection so cut a couple of swirls from a Tattered Lace die, it doesn't really show well but they sit at the same angle of the lines of the pattern.  I used a sentiment from the collection, added some lace and pale pink gems and a very nice brass bird in a cage...

I am entering this into the following challenges:

This is what I used this week

Happy Birthday CD Sunday

April 18th is the 6th birthday for CD Sunday and their challenge is so easy it would be rude not to enter. What they want you do is to link to a previous card made for CD Sunday so as I was on the original DT I thought I'd share the 1st card that I made.  It isn't one of my best and I probably wouldn't make something like this now but it just seemed fitting.
The team are offering a great prize so why not join in, if you haven't entered before you can still join in by linking back to something you've made previously as long as it has something from a cd included. 
Sorry forgot to say the cd was Victorian Companion from Joanna Sheen which I believe is no longer available.

Floral Frenzy at Polkadoodles

Hello there, I'm here with another post for the challenge over at Polkadoodles. This week it's the second half of our challenge called Floral Frenzy, and believe me there are so many things on the collections from Nikky that we are spoiled for choice! I decided to use the delicious Lemonade Fizz and used one of the great templates which makes it so easy to make something a little bit different.
I printed out a couple of the papers and then printed out the template onto the back of the paper and because I'm in the middle of a change around in my craft room I couldn't use my Cameo so cut everything out by hand.  I used Craft Artist to make up a page of flowers, bees and a butterfly and now ave some extra's saved for my next project.

As usual there are prizes to be won and we now also have a little something extra, if you use a Polkadoodles image to enter then you could win a feather in your cap!  This is an extra bit of fun for you to join in with and there will be a league table for those of you who want to collect the feathers, do pop over and check this out.
