Polka Doodles #21: Libby the Gypsy Girl.

Hello there my friends. It's Friday! Yay! As if that isn't good enough, we have an brand new Polka Doodles challenge starting today. The theme for Challenge #21 is "To Die For". All you have to do is use die cuts on your card. How easy is that?!

I made a quickie birthday card for this challenge, using a pre-coloured image of Libby the Gypsy from the Fredericka Mini CD Collection. To jazz it up I used Spellbinder dies to make a frame for Libby. If you want to make impressive cards with minimum effort - for those last-minute projects - this CD collection is the bees-knees. What's more, there are tons of pretty papers in the CD and they match perfectly with the digis. Also included are digi stamps of othe 6 pretty little ladies for you to colour.

Take a look at my easy peasy card:

My card base is black. The background paper is from the Fredericka Mini CD Collection.  And to frame Nikky's lovely little gypsy girl I used Spellbinders Resplendant Rectangles dies. I'm playing with black and purple for my project.  

Because the die-cuts are rather ornate, I'm keeping the rest of the card  simple by  just adding some bling, nothing else. And oh, some foam tape to give little Libby a lift.

Here's a close-up of the image. Beautifully coloured by Nikky Hall and perfect for when you need a card on the fly. 

Oh look! More die cut on the inside! I thought why's the name of the game this week. The birthday sentiment is also from the Mini CD Collection.

I'm taking Libby to the following linky parties: Crafts And Me #134 "Lots of Layers"Paper Craft Star #146 "Beauty"Whimsy Stamps Monthly #59 "Anything Goes"L exi's Creations #90 "Black & White and one other colour" - purple and Digi Sketch "Cute".

Now it's your turn. Use a die or two or three in making your project. Then link it up over at the Polka Doodles Challenge Blog. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Friday!
