This week at Polka Doodles the challenge is
For my card I used the wonderful Bonbon Belles CD
I made my card as a heart easel card, using distress inks
I cut flowers out from the CD, layering the middles and adding gems for the centers. 
I then cut out one of the Owlie images from the CD 
and popped her on top, 
added some gems as stoppers and voila ! 
I should have glittered up my owlie  I just remembered !!

Summer fun

That's the Challenge  !!
over at Polka Doodles this week.

I have used the new CD Bonbon Belles
to make my card.
Again I have gone for a CAS card.
I used the elements from the CD for the Ice creams,
cherries and strawberries !
I printed another set of images off and cut them out 
using 3D foam to give dimension.
I glittered up the ice-creams with stickles glitter glue.

Hope you like it !
