Talking to the Birds

It's my first day back at school today...hence the early hour of this post...so how did I spend my last night of freedom...crafting of course! I made a quick card for a few challenges: I used the Papertake Weekly Challenge sketch; took my colours from the inspirational photo from the BasicGrey Challenge; and used the 'Polkadot Party' theme of the My Time to Craft Challenge. I used Annie ('Talking to the Birds' by Sugar Nellie) because of her polkadot skirt, and coloured her to match the polkadot paper (from the 'Wisteria' pad by BasicGrey). I used my 'Swiss Dots' Cuttlebug folder to emboss the white card, added a piece of ribbon from Poppicrafts and a sentiment by Studio G.
