Polkadoodles Challenge - Finally!

Well blogger is fixed and I was lucky to have only lost one post, I know some people lost quite few.

Anyway here are the details of this weeks Polkadoodles challenge.

It was my turn to set the challenge this week and as it is my birthday on Sunday I decided to do a
Menu Choice
challenge, giving a list of some of my favourite things to choose from to make your card or project so that I would get to see lots of lovely creations that I am going to love!

You can choose one thing from each section, but whichever one you choose, you can't use the other on your card at all.

Image - Fairy or Butterfly
Colour - Pink or Turquoise
Embellishment 1 - Ribbon or Lace
Embellishment 2 - Pearls or Gems.

Now don't be greedy remember its one thing only from each section, for example if you pick ribbon then there cannot be any lace on your card.

For my card I chose Turquoise (my favouritist!?!?) colour, Butterfly, Ribbon and Gems.
The butterfly comes from the Sundae of Seasons CD rom and the paper and sentiment from All Around and Everywhere. Glitter, ribbon and gems are from stash. I used a Go Kreate die to create the shape of the card, printed the butterfly out twice, once on vellum, then shaped the wings and layered them up, I finished off with glitter around all the edges of the paper, the butterflies wings and even inside the card.

Check out the Polkadoodles challenge blog to see what items my fellow design team members chose and have a look at their fabulous creations.
