Some Exciting News!

Hi everyone,

Yay it's Friday, I hope you have had a good week.

Well I have some very exciting news to share with you. As you know I have been guest designing for Polkadoodles for a couple of weeks which I loved, but then I was contacted by Nikky to ask me join the team full time, wahoo, I am so excited and it only took a nano second to respond, so thank you Nikky for inviting me to be part of this awesome team.

So this is my first DT card. As always the challenge is 'Anything Goes' but the DT are always tasked with a theme. This time the team had to used pastel colours, well you know I love pastel colours so it wasn't a difficult one for me.

This gorgeous girl is called 'Surprise Gift Winnie' and I have coloured her with DI reinkers, but if colouring isn't your thing or you need to make a quick card, you can also buy her pre-coloured. (I have put links to both at the bottom of my post).

The gorgeous soft tone papers are also from Polkadoodles and they print out beautifully with a lovely texture.

Just click here to go to the papers as the link is not working properly at the bottom of the post.

The sentiment is also from Polkadoodles from the Winnie Celebrations kit 1.

I printed Winnie onto watercolour card and cut her out with a curricular die, once coloured I mounted it onto a  LDRS butterfly wreath die cut, finishing it off with some white pearl string. The small butterflies are also part of of the die set.

The pom pom trim, most of the flowers, ribbon and lace are from the Ribbon Girl.

Links to the materials I have used are at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Dress, Shoes and Flower: Victorian Velvet
Bow, Ribbon and Tag: Evergreen Bough

The winner of this challenge will win a voucher to spend in the Polkadoodles download store and each of the top 3 selected by the DT will win a free digi stamp voucher to spend in the store and you don't have to use a Polkadoodles image to enter the challenge so it's well worth entering.

Well that's all from me today.

Have a lovely weekend.

Thank you for popping in.
