Pollycraft DT Call

My third post for the day, I know.. I'm going crazy, but please bare with me. I have been too-ing and fro-ing with the idea of applying to Pollycraft since the Call first went out - and today (talk about leaving things til the last minute!!) I decided I would.. LOL!!

So.. there was the opportunity to grab two freebies.. hello?! You do NOT want to miss a chance like that - the images are a dream to colour!! See THIS post for all the details. I already have all the Chester (the little monkey), and you guys know I love him!!

I decided to go with Sonny's Party - which seemed to be the most popular choice amongst the other DT applicants. I have coloured her with a mixture of PMs and Copics and fussy cut her out.

I teamed her up with some patterned paper from MME Lime Twist - Life of the Party collection and some Pretty in Pink and Crumb Cake cardstock from SU! I have used numerous nesties to create my layout as well as a greeting stamp from Hero Arts.

I, of course, had to get some WOC goodness in there, so I've added some roses and cherry blossoms along side a homemade clay doodad - which I'm growing ever so fond of - I NEED more colours of clay! LOL.

I hope you like this colourful creation as much as I do. It has a lot more pink than I usually work with - but I was having a happy day, so I thought I would go along with it! LOL.

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
(I'll update it with challenges when I get back)
× The Crafty Pad - Bold and Bright or Soft Pastels
× Challenge up your Life - Circles
× Totally Paper Crafts - Spots & Stripes
× Art Impressions Stamps - Handmade Flowers
× CCEE1125 - Pink

You know what I just noticed?! NO corner rounding and NO stitching, real of faux, on this card!! *picks jaw off the table* Boy!! All of that pink must have done something to my brain!

Thanks for stopping by today guys, I'm off to McDonalds. As rumour has it.. the Big Tasty is back in town!! Yeeehaaa!! xo Lou.

  2. Hope you enjoyed the McDonalds. I love the shading of her dress & those blue eyes. Those splasehes ofr ed are ever so effective & I love the wayyour two colours of twine pick up the pink striped & lime green zig zags of the papers. I like how the touces of aqua really work with the dark mint green too.
