A little Polkadoodles Quickie

Hey everyone.  Polkadoodles introduced a 1 day twitter challenge for fellow tweeters to submit a card using a free digi-image.  I thought I would give it a try and see what I could come up with.

Here it is:

The purple backing paper if from Polkadoodles Sundae of Seasons CD.  The green backing paper is textured and is from a pack that I honestly can't remember buying (or therefore where I bought it)  The image was a freebie from Polkadoodles specifically for this challenge (THANKS).

I colored the image and the background with promarkers.  The butteryfly and the large flower were traced onto parchment and outline embossed. Using gold sparkle glue to attach the butterfly ended up giving it a nice effect under the parchment.  The flower was attached using a yellow polka dot brad.

The sentiment was from a fabric card kit that I got AGES ago from C&C.  Then I thought, hmmmm, it needs a little something more.  I decided on the sequins in blue at the top and in green at the bottom. 

Anyway, this was an unexpected quickie that I thought I would share with you all.  If you want to follow Nikki on twitter she is @Polka_doodles .  She is a real laugh and one of the nicest tweeters there are!

Have a great night and take care.

xx Denise
