Polkadoodle Challenge #2 - Sketch

It's challenge two on Polkadoodles Challenge Blog - and here is some (I hope!) inspiration for you! This week it is another fab sketch. Sorry the pic is a little small - hop over to the blog and it should be there too. And once again, you can use what ever stash you like as long as the basics of the sketch is followed.

The entries for the first week were stunning and we were totally overwhelmed by the popularity of our launch - so thank you to all those who left encouraging messages and submitted a card based upon the sketch. The top three entries will each get a special little blinkie to wear with pride on their blog!

As part of the Design Team, I get to work with Nikky's fab papers. Which, I understand are due to be released soon on a cd so you too can drool at them!

I decided to make a card for one of my cousins who is moving house (should be right about now I think!) and I thought the birdies looked so cute and fitted perfectly!

Everything, with exception to the dark blue card, ribbon and buttons are from the Sugar Birdies collection.

The flowers have been carefully cut out, edges inked and then slightly ruffled. The sentiment backer has had the same ruffled treatment and the little letters have been added with 3d foam pads. The letters actually were a lot bigger but I reduced the size down so I could print 4 copies onto a sheet of A4 - great if you need smaller letters!

The image was pre-coloured and I simply cut it down to fit the card and then glittered the birdies wings and the little dangly hearts.

Better remember to post the card to her now!
Hope you can join in on the Polkadoodles second challenge - click here for more details!
Good luck!
