Polka Doodles 1st Challenge :-)

I just found this brand new Challenge today :-) The Polka Doodles Challenge :-) What a fab name :-) They are asking us to make a card using this lovely sketch.

I used a 'Tilda in Spring rain', isn't she gorgeous :-) I coloured her with copics and 3D'd her. I used Basic Grey Lime Rickey papers, love the vibrant colours in this pad :-)The buttons are papermania and the sentiment is from Simon Says Clear Stamps SENDING SUNSHINE Exclusive Set. The stamps I used are all available in the Simon Says Stamp store

I also made this card to enter the Daring Cardmakers Challenge whose theme this week is 'Wet Wet Wet' :-)

Over on the Simon Says Stamp blog Heidi is asking everyone to link their creations using the new Magnolia Chasing Butterflies collecton to be in with a chance of winning a $100 prize draw !!!! :-) So this one will be linked in !!! :-)

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
