Polkadoodle Challenge 7 - Cherries!

Yeah - it's Friday! And that can only mean another Polkadoodle Challenge! We are upto week 7 and for this challenge the DT had to make an item using the Cherry collection on the Sugar Birdies cd but to have a hidden element....

Pop over to the blog to see who won last week's challenge and to drool over the DT cherry samples - this week your challenge is to make a fruity card with a hidden element!

So here is what I came up with - based upon the idea of a one-armed bandit - you pull the lever at the side and the winning line comes up in the centre....

The green spotty backing paper is also from the cd - in fact all paper based elements on my card are! I've inked all the edges with my trusty black faded inkpad. But I gave it a new lease of life by dripping a few drops of coca cola on it and its really got its umpf back - much better than water! I used my fingers for the moveable elements and yes, those are my fingerprints!

The little alphas are also on the cd and I've printed the sheet off so that there are 4 sets on a sheet of A4 card and the little cherry has been cut from a backing sheet from the collection.

Each cherry swings open to reveal what is underneath...

And its a cupcake! I've glitter glued all the cherries and the cupcake icing.

And finally, did you see Nikky on telly?! You did? She was really good wasn't she?! The show is being repeated over the weekend, so if you missed her, its Sky 671 or you can watch online via the Ideal World / Create and Craft website.
