Polkadoodles week 5

Good morning peeps, it's Friday which must mean a new Polkadoodle challenge. And this week it's our teamie Claire's turn to host the challenge and she ask that we include some paper piercing on our card.

Before I move on to how I made my card, I just want to remind you all that you still have time to enter the one off Stampalot challenge where the prize is a Big Shot plus dies etc.

I decided on a bit of machining, albeit it rather rickety, I just can't sew straight lines anymore it seems. And a colourway that I should use more, somehow I don't seem to use blue often but I was drawn to this pretty stripey paper from the 'Whiskers and Paws' section of the Back to Nature CD.

The stampie is from the same CD which I coloured with Copics, cutting three layers to build up and add dimension. The border is Martha Stewart embossed scallop and the corner frame a Sizzix die run through the Big Shot. The two flowers were created with punches and spritzed with Glimmer Mist lavender fields. I punched a few daisies from the stripey paper offcuts and added them round the image.
