Polkadoodle Is Three!!!

It's Polkadoodles Third Birthday!! And to celebrate the Design Team have made Birthday cards with an element of three - three papers, three brads - you get the picture!  And if that is not enough, there is a special post on the Polkadoodle blog with a special challenge and you could win a totally fantastic prize!  You'll have to go to the challenge blog to find out more!

I've made a cute and very pink card with three different papers from Sugar Plum Daisy and an image from Sundae of Seasons.  The balloons, letters and numbers are all dies and I've added glossy accents over the number 3.  I've added bakers twine for the balloon strings and three tiny pearls.

Although you can't see it, I've added fake stitching around the edge of the card and dotted a fine black line around the bunting and the balloons.

The card is for my niece Niamh who is three in November - I'll probably have forgotten by then that I've already made a card for her!

Don't forget to enter the challenge to be in with a chance of winning!!  It's an extra challenge to our usual Friday ones.  Good luck!
