Polka Doodles: Sugar & Spice

Hello again. my friends! Woohoo! It's Friday at last, my friends and we're having a long weekend. Tuesday is Carnival / Mardi Gras / Fat Tuesday / Pancake Tuesday ....  holiday! . Most employers either close on Monday or allow employees to take the day off - affectionately known as "Ponte" - the Bridge because that Monday is the link that gives us a 4-day weekend. Can you not tell from this convoluted and laboured explanation this is a matter very close to my heart?! :-)

Here's another reason to send your heart aflutter - Polka Doodles Challenge. We kicked off a brand new theme last week - Sugar & Spice. These week we're bringing you some more inspiration and another 7 days to play along. Yay!

In keeping with the sweet and girly theme, I made a birthday card. We had Mama Bear's card on Monday, Papa Bear's card on Wednesday and today I bring a card for Baby Bear:

The paper is from Bonbon Belles Double CD. I added some pink liquid pearls
to frame the card. 

The image is a rubber stamp called "Gracie" from Polka Doodles Fairy Butterfly
series. I coloured her with Graph It and Promarkers. I heat embossed the butterfly
from this set onto some vellum, fussy cut it, added some liquid pearls and placed
it behind the little girl.

The flower is from Dolly Daydream Girl Talk CD and I added a butterfly that
my nieces sent me a couple of years ago. I never throw away anything! LOL.
The greeting is also from the "Gracie", heat embossed in white.

So I had an extra flower and could not bear to chuck it. Guess where it ended up?! 

You'll find this card at these challenges:

Jelly Park Challenges: Things With Wings
Sister Act Cards #46: AG Cards Only
Simon Says Stamp on Wednesday: AG with Pearls - liquid pearls
DL.Art Thankful Thursday #127: Image of a Girl / Lady

That's my card for this challenge. Now how about you show me yours! You have a week to prepare a "Sugar & Spice" concoction. And make sure you link it up at the Polka Doodles Challenge Blog by Noon GMT on 7 March. As always, there's a risk you might win some fabulous prizes!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to have fun!
