Polka Doodle...

Another new challenge blog on the block!! and my friend, Kath, is going to be one of their DT'ers....so, I thought I'd give it a go...also, June is laden with Birthdays and Weddings so I thought I'd take advantage of these challenges to get my cards made....

For their first week they've set a sketch challenge - here's the sketch...
and here's my take on it:-


I'm not that good at following sketches...but, i don't think its too far out...lolxx the background is co-ordinations cardstock run thro' the cuttlebug with an embossing folder and then sanded, the two circles were cut on the cricut, again out of co-ordinations cardstock - the inner circle went thro' the cuttlebug and was embossed and then sanded....the patterned paper is 7 gypsies, the flowers have some old flowers in the middle with wire stems which I wrapped around a pencil and then pulled out to make tendrills....I stamped the image on Saturday from Angs' GIGANTIC collection of stamps!!! roflxx - that image is lovely isn't it...might just have to go on my wish list that one!!
