Wk4...Digi Choosday Challenge - Anything Goes/In the Pink

Happy Tuesday everyone and we all hope you're having a great crafty week!

Let's get straight to the good stuff today....
We have a special offer code 
for you this week for the Download Store - use code DCw440 at the checkout and you will save a massive 40% off all our digi products - woohoo! The code ends midnight on 2nd Feb so make sure you grab some lovely digis to work with!

We also have THE most stunning new addition to our CD collections this week - I am not usually a big fan of Oriental designs so I've always steered well clear of this genre but I had a little spark of an idea over Christmas when I saw a particular colour palette and so I got to work on Oriental with a Polkadoodles twist. Now, if you don't like Oriental either, I think this might change your mind! A gorgeous colour palette and stunning images and papers in this collection - we are all going WILD for it on the Design Team!

Obviously Valentine's is on it's way too and we have some brand new and yummy Emma Canning digis up for grabs too - Emma's designs are so cute! Check them out here!

So let's get on with the Challenge this week. As always our challenge is 
but we always challenge the Design Team with something special, so this week they had to go with
and boy, did they come up with some lovely makes as usual!

Don't forget you DO NOT need to use any Polkadoodles stash to enter because it's Anything Goes here, but PLEASE do not enter more than twice! We pick a random winner so to make it fair if you add more than this you will not be counted!!!

You can see the winners of our last challenge at the bottom of this post.

Let's see what the team made this week....

Zoe -  Challenged to be 'In The Pink' I took this very literally and used a bold shade to colour this gorgeous Dollie Daydream Girlie Talk  character using a mix of markers including Graph It's.  I coordinated the ribbon and ticket sentiments by colouring them to match with my markers. A simple embossed background set it all off.

Scatty Jan  I have made a card using lots of girly accessories from Dolly Daydream CD - there is so very much to choose from on there - its hard to decide which of the yumminess to use. I changed my mind so much xx
Debbi -Dollie is certainly 'In the Pink' on this card. I used the gorgeous new 'Dollie Daydream - Girl Talk' cd collection to make my card. I love that it has flowers that you can cut out a shape. I used the spiral roses and daisies...cute!! And Dollie is of course there looking very pretty in her pink dress :)
Anjie -  Instead if just doing a card with pink papers I thought I'd go with pink hair as well! The image, papers, sentiments and build a fleur are from the Dollie Daydream Girl Talk CD. The image is coloured with Graph'It Markers. I have made some rolled roses from the same papers and added a few die cuts.
The Graph'It's I used are:
Skin: 4115, 4155, 4170, 4175
Hair: 5110, 5180, 7150, 7155, 7160
Clothes: 9107, 9106, 9105, 9104, 9103

 Sally - Hi, Its in the Pink week!  So I thought I would use one of Emma Canning's new images, this cute little teddy! I coloured him pink, using my Graph'it markers and cut him out. I used a digi from a polkadoodle bundle and used my Pan Pastels to soften the edges. Mounted it on black card stock and then embossed white card with my button folder and then used my Pan Pastels in pink to enhance the designs. Then matted it on black cardstock.  Added a flower and buttons to finish the card. Cute eh?
Susan. This week I thought it would be nice to think of Spring for a change to all this wet and windy weather. So I have used every thing from Cherryblossom Lane ,this is such a sweet CD and so much to choose from and it could be that its on SALE!

So there's the inspiration for today!
