Polka Doodles For The Birds Challenge and News

Morning all,
I had some great news yesterday as I found out my tartan collage card tribute to Alexander McQueen has gained a Top 3 award over at Sophisticats. Many thanks to Lisa and the girls for making my day!

And now on to this week's challenge at Polka Doodles which has been set by Kris and she would like to see birds on your creation using this great sketch:
For my DT project, I've returned to my favourite Shake a Tail Feather Collection from the Back to Nature CD because I love the gorgeous green, lilac and aqua colour combination.
The card is really quite simple to make as I've layered up several of the pretty papers with some plain lilac card for contrast. My peacock has been cut out and put on a contrasting circle of plain aqua card embossed with the new Cuttlebug Kimmy Luvs folder (you may have noticed this keeps popping up but I just love it!).
To make all the card elements really pop, each of the pieces has been inked around the edges with a black ink pad. I added a circular matching greeting and some cut out flowers and feathers to finish.

Now for some more news which is a little hush, hush at the moment. The next Polka Doodles CD which is called Paper Boutique is being launched next Thursday, 25 February and we're all working on samples for Nikky at the moment. Believe me when I say, you're going to LOVE this! The elements on the CD are just gorgeous and I can't wait to show you what I've made!
