Polkadoodle Challenge 1 - A Wish for the New Year!

Welcome to the first Polkadoodle challenge of 2011! Emma has set the challenge this week and it is:

A Wish for the New Year!

This can be interpreted however you wish, but remember to follow the theme and not to enter your creation into more than 10 challenges including Polkadoodles otherwise you won't be eligible for a top three placing. The challenge runs until Sunday 16 January at 12noon GMT.

I've used the cupcake template from the brand new CD which is Paper Boutique volume 3 and will be released tomorrow live at 12noon and 3pm on Sky channel 671. This cupcake is made up of layers, a bit like decoupage, but you can layer it up as much as you want and have the freedom to make it how you want too!

There is also a pink version but I've gone for the lime green A5 pre-coloured version (sizes are A6, A5 and A4 in black and white for you to colour or paper piece yourself or pre-coloured versions). The ribbon bow at the top actually closes my cupcake so the concertina fold is at the base of the cupcake.

A bit of glitter glue here and there and a handwritten sentiment and its good to go! And almost as good to eat! There are lots of shaped cards or templates on the cd - Spaceman, Rocket, Robot, Bathing Hippo, Truck, Flowers - lots and lots and all a lot of fun and really easy to make!

Good luck in entering the challenge!

  • All paperbased items: Paper Boutique Vol 3 from Polkadoodles
