Through The Window

Morning peops, it's Friday again and I can't quite believe it's only just over a week until Christmas and I haven't yet sent out my cards or finished my Christmas shopping - eek! This is mostly because I'm up to my eyes in figure work and VAT returns - yuck!
I'm here today with all the details of the final Polka Doodles challenge for 2011 as we're having a much needed Christmas break. The challenge has been chosen by Daniele and she would like to see a Window or Aperture on your creation. In my case this turned out to be a frame attached with foam tape although it's actually quite hard to see this in the photos.


All of the elements on my easel card are from the Magical Winter CD set and I made a frame to fit the front of the easel with some of the pretty dotty paper and my circle cutter. I attached this to the front of the card with foam tape and set the toadstool house in the frame. I added Woodware Fluffy Stuff on the house and the frame edge to give a snowy effect and glittered it a little.
I added the cute elf to the outside of the frame then covered the base with the dotty paper and finished off with a lovely sentiment panel and some snowflakes punched from various glitter card shades. And that's it - done!

Do pop over to the challenge blog as there's some gorgeous inspiration from the Design Team and also details of the CANDY on offer to some lucky entrant of this challenge.

Challenges for my card:
Crafty Purple Frog - It's Cold Outside
Delightful Challenges - Anything Goes
Meljen's Designs - No Rectangles
Paper Play - Christmas
ABC Christmas Challenge - Anything Christmas Goes
Crafting For All Seasons - Christmas
Divas By Design - Christmas

Have a lovely weekend.
Hugs, Fliss xx
