Week 6 Challenge - 'That's Amore!'

It's Friday so time for another Polkadoodle challenge! This week I (Miria) am your hostess and my theme is That's Amore! - I ask you to create a project related to a love song or a romance film.

Before I show the Design Team creations, the top three from challenge 4 which was Tracies Party Time theme are:

Second Place: Katie Oakley
Third Place: Claire

Congratulations! Please email Nikky with your place number and challenge 4 in the subject header.

2. Only enter your creation into a maximum of 10 challenges including Polkadoodles

Right, back to the eye candy!

Miria: My card is inspired to Love Story, a film that I loved so much when I was a teenager lol! I made an easel card using colour stampies and papers from Sundae of Seasons. The quote and the title are computer generated and buttons and lace from stash.

Put on your thinking cap and if you are stuck for inspiration, just have a look at my teamies' fab creations!

Enfys: My card was inspired by the song 'You're Still the One' by Shania Twain. I used papers and elements from the Love and Cherish CD (one of my all time favourites, so romantic and pretty), and simply matted them onto black, added a bit of doodling, inking, glitter and a charm and I was done

Ruth: I've gone for 'Breakfast at Tiffanys' by Deep Blue Something as I've never actually seen the film! I've used the very fab Recipe For A Great Day template from Paper Boutique Vol 3, layered it up with foam pads, added two sparkly brads, some ribbon and a bit of glitter glue here and there!

Fliss - My easel card was inspired by The Beatles' song 'All You Need Is Love' and as you can see it has plenty of that. I decided on a pink and chocolate brown colour scheme and the gorgeous owls and love themed paper came from the Love and Cherish CD. The polka dot paper is from the Sundae of Seasons CD and all I added was some punching with a Martha Stewart punch and a heart shaped jewel stopper.

D'Anne - Welcome Friends! My card was inspired by the song 'You Don't Bring Me Flowers' by Barbra Streisand. The recipient of this card will receive a wheel barrow of flowers. The digital papers and elements are from the Spring collection on the Sundae of Season CD.

Saskia - Something sweet and yummy while enjoying 'Pretty in Pink'!! Papers are from the Sugar Birdies Collector's Edition cd-rom.

Audrey For this project I used Sundae Of Seasons CD for everything polka dots. I printed out the images twice to give them some definition and used Glossy Accents on all the polka dots to make it look like there are raindrops on them.

Colette - For this project I have used the owl, papers and flowers from the Sugar Birdies Collector’s Edition CD Rom. The sentiment is computer generated and buttons are from stash. Now I must apologise for this next part in advance but here goes, the song I've used is 'Owl always love you' by the fabulous (oh nooo, here it comes) ...........T-wit-ney T-whoo-ston, sorry I just couldn't resist LOL!

Tracie : My card this weeks was inspired by the song "Why a caged bird sings" I used the beautiful birdcage from the New Paper Boutique 3 - Projects Galore CD

Lis-m: I have made a quick and easy card this week featuring the Sundae of Seasons cd. My inspiration was 'Bee my Baby' by the Ronettes, as featured in Dirty Dancing..! The bees and hive are from the summer part of the cd and the yummy lemon ditsy print paper is from the greens section on the papers. Raffia bow to finish!

Dee: I have to say, this challenge had me a bit stumped. I really couldn't think of a love song or film that I could make a project for. The more I tried the more I couldn't think, well I am getting older now, lol. I did however finally think of one so my card is 'two hearts beat as one'. It is an overload of pink though, it would have to go to a fan of the colour. I over-stamped the hearts and the main backing paper with some lovey-dovey stamps I had, in for a penny in for a pound I went the whole hog on this card. All the papers and elements are from the Love and Cherish CD. I added clear dewdrops and some ribbon, all of which can be found on the Polka Doodles website.

Lou: Not a "love song" sort of person so struggled to think of a lovey dovey song that I liked and having no working printer at the moment fustrated me further! Well after looking through my "toones" on the computer, finally decided on "Truly, Madly, Deeply" by Savage Gardens. I have used the ever so versatile barocque style stamp from the "Daisy Doodles" collection to create all my detail; the border strips & the lickle toppers. A little embossing, velvet ribbon and shocking pink vellum add a touch of texture to the card along with some gems and metal staples (used as hangers)! Decorative edges created with a Martha Stewart punch.

Deadline for the challenge is Sunday 20 February at 12noon GMT and please remember to follow our little rules! Good luck!
