Polkadoodles challenge

What a learning curve I have been on this week with my first DT card for Polkadoodles. My goodies arrived lunchtime Wednesday but as DT work is due in that day not too much time to get my head round the confession, I am a total virgin at working with CD's. But, how easy the Back to Nature CD is and wow, what fantastic images, all very my sort of thing and now I can't want to get stuck in properly to this one one and the others.
The theme for this weeks challenge is New Year with an envelope somewhere on your project. I just love this owl family and the polka dot paper and being eager to try out everything have used one of the flower swirls from the accompanying Back to Nature Unmounted Stamp Sheet and stamped across the top of the card and embossed with iridescent powder for some New Year sparkle. The punch is Martha Stewart Embossed Scallop, I added Diamond Glaze to the owls eyes and some pearls to embellish.


  1. Oh Brenda, I so love this new one! it's just such a cutie with the owl family and their sparkling eyes, and the pearls finish adds that sweet little touch...
    Well done again!
