New Polkadoodles Challenge Begins Today

Happy Friday everyone xxx Today see's the beginning of a New Challenge over at Polkadoodles we would love to see your entries so why not visit the BLOG to see the Challenge and to check out the Projects from the Design Team

I am really loving the Dollie Daydream - Girl Talk CDrom and I loved making this card

I chose to use some of the gorgeous Turquoise and Beige Elements from the CDrom, oh and I had to mix it up with lots of Polka Dots which I absolutely love

I chose all my papers, Embellisments and the Sentiment before I picked the Digi I wanted to use from the CDrom and then I coloured her with co-ordinating Copic Markers


Hair: E35, E31
Skin: E11, E00, E51
Lips & Blush: R02
Eyes: BG13
T-Shirt & Trainers: BG32, BG13, BG11, C2, C1
Jeans: C8, C6, C4

The 3D Flowers I cut out from a sheet printed from the CDrom and then curled using a Bone-Folder Tool, I then layered them and fixed to the card using Glue Gel. The Rolled Rose was cut from another sheet and then rolled up using a Quilling Tool.

Here are a few close ups

I have also used the Matching Insert from the CDrom and I think it finishes the card perfectly xx

I have also used one of my Original Bebunni 'Special Friend' stamp set for the first time, you can get yours HERE! he is so so cute and he suits many themes not just Birthday - I know there is a Love collection out now too by Crafters Companion but I've not been able to buy any of those just yet (soon though hehe)

I used the 3rd smallest Die to cut my card blank using my Joy Machine and then cut another of the same size to make into an Easel Card. I then cut two Hearts from drawing around the inner of the Die and cutting with scissors. I then Die cut 2 scallop Hearts from Xcut set and then 2 scallop heart from drawing around the outside of the Die and cutting with scissors - I love to layer up the GoKreate Dies with similar shape dies.

The main card blank and all the white hearts using Centura Pearl - hint of silver - cardstock from Crafters Companion - all the red hearts are cut from Creata Mirror Card.

I have also used Xcut Nesting Heart Dies to cut out the sentiment hearts which I have stamped the sentiments from the Bebunni stamp set x

New Polkadoodles Challenge

I am very excited to be a part of the New Polkadoodles Challenge please visit the Polkadoodles Blog HERE to find out more about the Challenge and to see the Brilliant examples by the Talented DT using the new CDrom 'Dollie Daydream Girltalk' x

Such a gorgeous new collection and I have loved being able to create with it.

Here is the Card I made for the Challenge

I have used Papers, Sentiment, Digi and Build-a-Fleur elements all from the CDrom.

The papers and Fleurs all colour co-ordinate perfectly and i had a lot of fun looking around the CDrom before choosing which papers to use - The Fleurs are so easy to cut out and layer up - I used a bone folder to curl the smaller flower for a dimentional effect and finished the flower with a button from my stash - The sentiment I cut using a Nesting Die and then Matt&Layers cut with 2 different sizes from the same set. I added a few black Gems to tie in with the colour theme xx

The Digi is coloured using Copic Markers all colours in the pic below 

Here are a few Close-Ups to show you the layers and details
