Polka Doodles meets the One Stop Craft Challenge

There's a fab new challenge blog called Polka Doodles...it launched on Friday, with a great sketch for the first challenge...and gorgeous candy to give away...if you haven't checked it out yet...what are you waiting for??? I've combined my the sketch with 'Vintage' theme of this week's One Stop Craft Challenge. For my main image I've used 'Pringle' (by Sugar Nellie), together with papers from the 'Figgy Pudding' collection by BasicGrey - I inked all of the edges to give a more 'vintage' feel...and I'm sure you'll agree that Pringle looks 'well-worn'! lol The sentiment is from the 'Fabulous Birthday' set by Hero Arts, and the stars were cut using Nesties.
