Polka Doodles Week 11

This week over at Polka Doodles Nikky has set the challenge and if she doesn't mind me saying a challenge is exactly what it was!!! It started out with this sketch . . .



Then we were given some rules. . . We had to use 4 shapes and they should interlock or be matted and layered and we could only use brown and blue!!! So I sat down with cold sweats ( partly due to the challenge and partly to do with the flu ) and this is what I have created! Now the papers I just love especially the background roses form the Love and Cherish CD. Now it may look more on the grey side than the blue but I am claiming its blue and thats the end of it!!! The base of the card is A4 folded plain brown cardstock, I have added to this a plain piece of blue card then added the blue ( not Grey ) roses paper! The flowers are from the Love and Cherish CD also but the papers they are printed onto are from the Back to Nature CD. I have used the same pattern in two shades, then layered them up and curled the egdes for some dimension! I have punched a border with my MS punch onto brown packing paper that I had left over from something my hubby sold on ebay and I have run this across the bottom on the card. I have added some brown ribbon along the left hand side if the card and where they meet I have used a fab topper from the Love and Cherich CD. This topper is a leftover from last weeks challenge ( waste nothing people ) I have covered it with glossy accents and ( because I am too cheap to buy crackle medium ) I cracked it when it was completly dry and rubbed into it some glimmer mist ( using a sock as I had no tissue to hand - it was an old odd sock mind ) I just hope that the layers of the flowers count as different shapes x x x
