Polka Doodles challenge #2

WOW a week has gone by already & we are onto our 2nd challenge over at Polka Doodles. A big thank you to everyone who entered the sketch challenge this week - there were oodles & oodles of entries & I spent many a happy hour, with a large black coffee & the occasional Belgium Bun (yum) looking at all the entries. Now it was very hard for the DT to pick the top 3 from all the fab entries submitted this week but it was a task we had to do & here they are:

1st - Lou - Louby Lou
2nd - Lynda - Lynda Loves Crafting
3rd - Linda - A Slice of Life

Nikki has designed a fab set of blinkies for the "Fab 3" to proudly display on their blogs. & there is also a prize for the 1st place winner. Don't forget the MEGA LUSH, SCRUMMILICIOUS BLOG CANDY draw over at Polka Doodles doesn't finish until 31st May, so if you haven't already entered, you have a couple of days left to do so.

The sketch this week took
me a while to get my head around but I got there in the end . . .

I have used the scrummy papers "Sugar Cherry Cupcakes" which are from a collection of designs to be found on the "Sugar Birdies" CD. I have then created 2 cherry toppers using these papers & the sentiment topper has been written by me! They were then layered along the edge. Card finished off a printable ribbon design & further embellished with thin red ribbon.

As for the cupcake . . I printed 2 and have layered them on top of each other but have made the top layer slightly smaller so that it gives the cupcake more dimension. I have chalked all the edges with shimmer chalks to create a shadow effect. The cherry was finished off with its own bit of bling!

I hope you will be able to join us again this week & I can't wait to see what you make using the fab sketch. You could also be the lucky recipient (big word!) of one of the fabaroo Polka Doodles "top 3 " blinkies. Don't forget to check out what the other DT members have made - I think its amazing how we have all come up with something completely different using the same papers!

Take care and "Happy Friday",

LuLu x x x

Love your card Lulu, saw it on the blog this morning and understand how it took a bit of time to get your head round it lol. But it wouldn't be a challenge if it was too easy. Brilliant.
