WOW - It's Friday!

First week of the New Year and first week of the girls back at school - gone!  Hope things are warming up a little for some of you - we still have another 3 months of winter to get through here - hey ho!

Anyways, it's Friday so that means it's the start of another challenge over at Polkadoodles.  Here we go again - Week 2 and every week is now Anything Goes, although the design team gets a theme and you can play along if you want. This week we were asked to create something girly.

Now Nicky was busy creating over Christmas - this woman never stops - and she has just released this fabulous new CD collection called Dollie Daydream Girl Talk.  Loads of papers, sentiments digis, both coloured and black and white.  So many things on this CD.

** Dollie Daydream Girl Talk CD Collection

I decided to use one of the digital stamp shoes from the CD and using my Silhouette Cameo, created a shaped card!

Everything for the shoe is off this new collection.  The papers, topper and rolled flower!  Oh except the real ribbon bow, of course - I'm not that good that I can print my own real fabric ribbon LOL!

I cut out the ribbon of the shoe to layer and add depth, and then added the rolled flower to the centre of the bow.

For the inside, I cut a slightly smaller shoe, in the same papers but a darker shade (now looking at the photos I probably should have done it the other way around, darker on the outside) and then also just cut in white for somewhere to add a place to address the card.  The sentiment on the inside is also from the CD.

I think I should have perhaps made the base of my card in a similar colour - note to self to remember for the next time :-)

Nikky currently has a sale on of 15% off  - so if you want this collection and want to save some, hurry on over and take a look.  Worldwide shipping is just 99p (approx $1.65) or free if you spend over £20 (approx $33). 

And don't forget to go along and enter the challenge, don't forget - always Anything Goes.  You have until Sunday 19 Jan (12pm GMT) to enter.
