Anything Goes at Polkadoodles

Morning everyone :o)

I'm here with my DT card for Polkadoodles, where our challenges are always 'anything goes' for participants, but the DT are following the theme of 'winter birthday'.

I don't really make 'winter birthday' cards as such... I find they can often end up looking like Christmas cards, and having a winter birthday myself (and loads in our family too) I like it to be totally separate from Christmas.  So I chose an image that looked fairly warmly dressed and some chilly colours, and that's about as wintery as I get!

I've used a gorgeous image called January Heart on Your Sleeve, coloured with copics.  The papers are from the Belle Papillon paper pad and the sentiment was made using stamps from the fab Build Your Own Male Sentiments set.  The flowers are my favourite MFT die-namics die and the buttons are from my stash... I actually intended to use the plain side of that spotty button, but went on auto-pilot and put the glue on the wrong side lol, so it's one of those happy accidents that all the buttons are different!  Oh, and there's a Doodlebug sparkly enamel dot on the image's flower.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
As You Like It - your favourite die and why (I love this flower die and use it ALL the time, probably too much!  It just fits in so nicely when I want something pretty but not too fussy)
Aud Sentiments - anything goes
Fab n Funky - girly
Simon Says Wednesday - add a sentiment

Mum's home from hospital, but still really not well... not sure if it's the flu causing it or a reaction to one of the medications she now has to take, but she can't keep any food down and is getting very fed up.  I'm still shaking off my cold, so haven't risked going to see her yet, as the last thing she needs is more germs!  I'm feeling much better now though, so hopefully I can go at the weekend.

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely day :o)

Gorgeous card Lisa! Outstanding colouring of the image especially her hair, got a lovely shine to it going on there :). The spotty button looks like it was meant to be there.
So sorry your mum is still really ill, my heart goes out to her. Hopefully you'll be better soon and able to cheer her up a bit. Take care. Debra x
