PolkaDoodles #51: Christmas Birthday

It's the last Friday before Christmas! And the only weekend left to do all your last minute shopping. If, like me, you plan to stay away from the shops then a spot of online shopping will help. There's a rumour that Ms Nikky of PolkaDoodles has gone completely bonkers and is literally giving away stuff. Check this out:

There's free shipping worldwide on all orders over £10. 
Hurry! This insanity will not last long.

Before you rush off to shop, let me just show you the card I made for this week's PolkaDoodles  "Christmas Birthday" Challenge. You are free to follow this theme or "Anything Goes". It doesn't get easier than that, I tell ya! I made this card for my friend. She'll be celebrating her 35th birthday (again) on the 27th.

I'm using papers from the PickNix Collection 2 CD: Gingerbread Twist. Gorgeous papers, so there's really no need to fancy embellies. Some bling, Stickles,  pale blue sheer ribbon and it's done!

The image is from the Angelberry CD, where you will find the cutest sweetest Christmas angels. I added some Stickles on her wings...I had to. I realise this is Birthday Card but she is, after all, a Christmas angel. :-)

A little peek inside. The sentiment is from the PickNix Collection 1 CD, which is jam-packed with lovely papers, images and tons of embellishments, greetings and sentiments.  

If you are looking for a great 2-for-1 combo, then why not consider the PickNix Collection. Having both the CDs in your crafting arsenal will see you through all kinds of projects for the entire year. And you can mix and match everything from all of PolkaDoodles compatible, so versatile.
