Hello folks, hoping you're all OK and I'm now back from my holiday in gorgeous (also mostly very hot and sunny) Switzerland. I'll be posting some of my pics over the weekend once I've finished all my chores - washing etc!
Being Friday, we have a new challenge over at Polka Doodles with the theme chosen by teamie NJ who, with the end of the Olympics looming fast wants to see a CELEBRATION project. I decided on a general theme for my card using one of the lovely Emma Canning digital images available from the Polka Doodles shop. Here's what I made:

I've gone for a pretty pink and brown colour scheme, printing out the cute Millie - Birthday image and colouring her with various Promarkers before adding a little more detail with Prismacolor pencils. I then die cut the image and inked the edges with pink ink. I added this to a die cut mat of cross check paper from the Sugarplum Daisy CD.
I covered my card blank with brown polka dot paper from the PPC3 magazine kit and added a central border of lace from the Studio 12 Picknix Collection 1 CD.
I then printed out some of the pretty digital flowers from the Sundae Of Seasons CD, coloured these with Promarkers, cut them out and made them into an embellishment with punched leaves and pearls.
I finished off with a sentiment from the Sugarplum Daisy CD, die cut and coloured with Promarkers then embellished with pearls.

Have a great weekend everyone!
Hugs, Fliss xx
