Fabulous Friday - Wish it was Spring :-)

Spring - I can but dream :-)  It's a long way off yet though and there's plenty of snow on the ground to remind us it's still Winter.

But in my crafting I can show Spring :-)

Our challenges at Polkadoodles are now always Anything Goes.  The Design Team were asked to used only a Design Sheet from any of the collections for our cards this fortnight.

I have used the delightful Winnie Sugar Sprinkles.  This is Design Sheet #11 from the collection. It can, however, be also purchased as the single Design Sheet too - so if you need a quick card, why not pop along to the Polkadoodles store and look at all the Design Sheets available. Of course you could check out all the fabulous collections too - they are such a bargain!

I cut all the pieces using my Silhouette Cameo - but they are great to cut free hand too!

I did use one piece of card stock that has been embossed, with a Cuttlebug Geometric Rings emossing folder, for the backing on the front and the inside of my card.  I used the Spellbinders Pierced Oval die for my message panel and used the spare little bird house for the inside too.

I have inked all the edges of all my layers and added some dimension with foam tape.

Don't you just love Winnie, she is so adorable.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges.

Penny's Paper-crafty Challenge - Challenge #313: Anything Goes (closes 31 Jan)

Creative Moments - Challenge #110: Anything Goes twist Keep it Feminine (closes 6 Feb)
