Swirls, Pearls and pretty pastels

Wooo hooo!!!! My first DT sample for Polka Doodles team!!! ;)) Yeeeey!!!

And the theme for our challenge is Swirls, Pearls and Pretty Pastels ;)). This week we also have a super cool giveaway from LETRASET!!!

And here is the fruit of my efforts ;). I am still finding my way in the digital world but I had lots of fun playing around and merging images ;))). I've made this card for my little niece's birthday, she will be 10 years old in 2 weeks ;). She has really good grades at school and I wanted her to know how proud her autie is of her!!!!

The papers I’ve used are from the super fab Pretty Sweet CD and were matted on pastel pink card stock. I had great fun playing with the image – it’s been put together from the images Pretty Sweet and Pretty Tuff CDs. The swirls were cut using MM Slice and decorated with Liquid Pearls. To embellish I used lots of machine stitching, glitter and flowers.

If you, just like me, struggle a bit with colouring the images, you will LOVE Polka Doodle CDs as the images come in ready coloured versions as well as B&W digi stamps. If you love colouring but perhaps would like to get a few expert's tips then The Colour Studio Workshop with our lovely Nikky is just what you need!!! You can check the details here.

Make sure you check the lovely DT samples for this challenge as the Team have really prepared a treat for you!

And guess what???!!! It's almost the weekend!!!!

Big hugs
