Birthday with Bling

Yay! Friday at last! The weekend is almost here and time for another Polkadoodle Challenge. The theme for this week' s challenge is Birthdays with Bling. With such an easy challenge, there really is no excuse not to play along.

I made this card for a 17 year old girly-girl. I needed something I could whip up quickly, but looked like I spent time putting together. I had to cheat... and Polkadoodles made cheating so much fun! Here's my card:


I'm using a pre-coloured Frederika Debutante from the Frederika Mini CD Collection. The background paper is also from this CD.

I'm sticking to a simple colour combo with plenty of layering with Spellbinders Classic Oval dies.  To jazz up my card, I made flowers out of left-over paper from the Cherry Blossom Lane CD, using Spellbinders Rose Creation dies. 

Here's a close-up of the flowers. I inked the petals with TH's Spun Sugar and stuck a bling in the centre of each bloom. For some extra shine I applied some Stickles.

 To create a frame for Frederika I used Spellbinders Floral Oval and dotted it with some more bling. The greeting is from  Frederika Mini CD Collection.

Here's the inside... plain and simple.

I'm also playing along with Aud Sentiments Challenge #79 "Happy Birthday To Us"C.R.A.F.T #204 "... Bling It Up ..."Crafting For All Seasons #50 "No Stamps Allowed"Crafty Creations #219 #Pink + One"Bearlymine Challenges #83 "Digi Days"The Sisterhood of Crafters "Free For All" and Creative Card Crew #34 "Handmade Flowers".

Now it your turn. Make a birthday card and bling it up...let it shine. Then, link it up to the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog. There are cool prizes to be won so hy not give it a whirl. Hope to see you at the linky party.

Thanks for stopping and I'll see you tomorrow with another card. Ta-ta for now!

Beijinhos!
