Polkadoodle Challenge 36 - Significant Birthday or Occasion and Not A Card!

It's time for a new Polkadoodle challenge and the theme this week is:

Significant Birthday or Occasion

And the twist is that it cannot be a card!  Today is Jacob's Birthday but next Friday its Samuel's Birthday and he will be 10 so I've made these cake toppers with a paper from Studio 12 Gingerbread Twist, an X Cut die and some Sizzix die cut numbers from kraft card.

The great thing about Gingerbread Twist is that a lot of the papers can actually be used for non Christmas projects too!  I've inked the edges of the stars and slightly curled them plus then added a dotted line around the edge with a black gel pen.

Good luck with the Polkadoodle challenge!

Bloggers Challenge:  To Die For
