Polkadoodle Challenge 31 - Bunting and Banners

Ready for another post?! This one is for Polkadoodle - another challenge is launched today and the theme is:

Banners and Bunting

I've made this image bigger than normal because I am rather pleased with how it turned out - it looked nothing like this in my head!!  I've used Candy Doodles papers plus some random doodling around the edges.  X Cut dies for the ovals and an Emma Canning digi that I've coloured with Promarkers (rather pleased with how the hair has turned out!) plus a smidge of liquid pearls.

The bunting has been made with offcuts of card and I've added a dotted line around the inner edge and then added half pearls plus some pink and white bakers twine.  I think the girlie in me is screaming to get out at the moment and I've even been wearing DRESSES for work (there was a sale on in Monsoon at Piccadilly Station a few weeks ago and I could not resist half price or better - was £55 reduced to £16.50 and £24 - I mean, hello?!  And they fit perfectly!)

Good luck with the challenge!
