Winston Bear sending birthday wishes ...

Whoops, I've got my dates all muddled and this post is going out late! It should have been yesterday and I'm not sure which calendar I am looking at but it isn't for this year !

The theme over at Polka Doodles Challenges is "Sugar and Cream" which is all about cream, white, coffee and pink colours. The coffee bit was the key for me as I knew which collection I was going to use ... Winston. The colour palate in this collection, match this challenge perfectly.


Now on to the shape of me card ... well, it was the sentiment that gave me the idea, so I made the front of the card look like an envelope ...and Winston is sitting there ready to put his note inside. Using the back of an envelope to get the shape, I then made my own templates that fitted the card size I wanted to use. All the elements have been printed on to cream paper, (to go with the theme) and love the soft look it gives to the papers.

  
I have even decorated the inside to co-ordinate with the front which is fast becoming my "new must do" ...! Next time might add the envelope tab as may give it more of an envelope appearance ... rather than a nappy look.


Right need to get this on the challenge blog before someone notices,
