This week it was the turn of the boss to set the Polka Doodle Challenge. She set us a sketch challenge as well as saying we could only use 3 colours...

I had already decided to keep it quite simple this week and knew I wanted to make a wintery card with blues.

I started by making a card blank out of blue textured card stock. I then cut 3 shapes using Labels Nestabilities dies (talking of which look here - some new ones YUM!!) Using fairy flutterby stamps I stamped the fairies on the 3 shapes as well as onto a post it note. I cut the post it note image and stuck it over the label image as a mask.

Using the small and large snowflake from the Christmas Doodles stamp plate and a metallic blue ink pad I randomly stamped snow all over the labels. After removing the masks I used promarkers to colour the images.

I typed my sentiment in Sergoe Script and Simon fonts on my computer and printed onto white linen cardstock and rounded the corners. I then 3d mounted the panels and the greeting.

For the final touch I picked up my ever trusty Stickles in Diamond and glittered EVERYTHING! the snowflakes, the fairies, the edges, the greeting, if it was there it got glittered.

Hope you like my card this week. As usual everyting I used can be found at the fabulous Polka Doodles Shop. Dont forget to go look at the rest of the design teams images, and have you entered the excellent Letraset comp on the blog yet? Nikky has been doing really helpful tutorials too so why not have a go :)
