1. Please follow the challenge theme!
2. Only enter your creation into a maximum of 10 challenges including Polka Doodles
3. Please link your blog post and not your blog address with the linky tool - this saves us from searching your blog for your entry
4. And please, no back-linking to previous posts - these will be disregarded from our top three voting
5. If you have word verification on your blog it really does slow us down when leaving comments - please consider turning word verification off especially now that comment moderation has a spam section

So, onto this week's challenge!  Something a little different as we are challenging you to make a

Gift Card holder!

The first placed winner from this challenge will win a copy of Paper Boutique Vol 3 cd!

Ruth:  I've used an old favourite - Paper Boutique Vol 2 and cut out the pre coloured Santas (he's been lightly glittered!) with my Nesties and then made a template for the gift card with papers from the same cd.  Pretty quick and easy to make - that is why there are 4!

Patty: For this lovely challenge I used some papers purple dots left on my desk layered on to some white card. Used Emma Canning image Birthday Girl, coloured it with my Prismacolors pencils.

Lisa - for my creation this month I've used my old favourites from the Back to Nature CD, the owls of course, and papers from Sundae of Seasons. To see what's inside the giftcard you have to pop over to my blog as there isn't room here to show you all the photos.

Lucy ~  For this lovely challenge I used papers from the Sugar Plum Daisy CD Rom, layered on to some black card. The image is stamped with the Gracie Fairy Flutterfly Rubber stamp. Coloured in with Pro Markers.

AnneThese gorgeous papers are from the new Studio 12 Picknix CD .  I just printed them straight onto  white 320gm card turned it around and did the same on the other side.

Daniele, for my card I used the really sweet bumble bee image from the Sugarplum Daisy Cd and added lots of gliiter .....cos I lurvvvvve my glitter, I did layer up parts of the image for added dimension, I made a pocket for the front of the card and popped in a matching tag, you can add a giftcard to the front or back of the tag.

Shary - I've made a gift card holder that holds a credit card gift voucher. The papers are from Sundae of Seasons and I've edged them all with peeled paint. The image on the front is from the Pretty Sweet CD and I've coloured her with Copics. The sentiment on the inside is from the Sugar Plum Daisy CD and again I've used Peeled paint to colour it. I've added a little bit of ribbon and some gem brads to finish it off.

Good luck with the challenge - deadline for entries is 15 July at 12noon GMT and don't forget our rules! *****
