Now onto this weeks beautiful inspiration from our Design Team.....

Dawn:   I have used a precoloured image from Work & Play 9 Love & Kisses, which can be purchased  here or the full CD set here & mirror imaged it to show 2 brides as I have a friend whose daughter is marrying her  partner  later this year. The papers are from the same CD as well, as is the sentiment & champagne bottle & glasses. More details on my blog.


Asha: I was in a super girly girl mood when I reached out for the adorable Pretty Sweet Mini CD collection. Calling it Mini is an understatement! This CD is packed with the prettiest, sweetest, most darling images and papers. I used little Maddie as my focal image and she was a delight to colour with my Graph'It markers. Maddie with Present is also available as a single download digistamp. 

Scatty Jan - I decided to make a shaped card for this challenge - I made this sweet little baby card - The Pink checked paper is from Cherryblossom Lane collection. Added in some lace, Ribbon and a little Bow. I then added on little Etty from the Winston collection CD, which is also available as download,an also Etty as a digi that you can find here. layered up to give a little depth.


Ashley Lydia- I decided to make a very girly card using the fabulous princess and carriage from the Work & Play 9 Love & Kisses which you can find here. I made a glitter frame for dimension, and added some flowers that I dyed with chalk to match the purple and pink theme as well as some adorable hearts from the embellies of the WP9 collection. The princess is pre-colored but I added some vibrancy using my markers, its a great idea to go over the colors and practice your coloring skills =) 


Cheremane - I have used the fabulous Work & Play 9 Love & Kisses Cd you can also get the Bride & Groom as a Digi download Here. I adore Ribbons & lace so this was a very easy challenge for me. I printed the papers and distressed the edges with Milled Lavender distress ink, I used a lace edge punch on one of the papers, I die cut the pre-coloured digi image and distressed inked it before removing from the die to get a shadow. Finally added Ribbon Lace, flowers pearls and heart charm and a touch of glitter to the brides dress to finish. Pop on over to the Polkadoodles Shop as you will find everything for all your crafting needs and wants all in the one place.

Karon - I decided to use the wonderful Rose Budd Papercraftng Cd collection.  Everything on the card is from this fabulous collection, except the real bit of lace down the left side and the pearl dot on the ribbon.  Even the lace underneath the lace (lol) is off the CD.  Inked the edges and added a little dimension to the flowers with foam pads.


Christine I used Saucy Wedding Night   digi, I colored her with Spectrum Noir Markers and colored pencils.  The fold is one I found on Pinterest.  I used the cut files from the Work And Play 9-Love and Kisses Collection, and the papers from this wonderful set. I added some ribbon and lace on the folds of my card. 


Agnieszka - hello Crafters :) Today I want to share with you my card, which I prepared as an inspiration for Ribbons and Lace.  I  used pre-coloured image from Work & Play 9 Love & Kisses - Full Download Bundle.  As I love a lot of embellishments on my cards - it was a pleasure created this card. I added a big ribbon bow in purple, paper and fabric lace, a few flowers, cristals and dies cut - my card is ready, hugs.


AnnaThis time, I made an Easter card again, in shades of violet, with lace, ribbons, eggs and flowers. The card is made from paper from the Winston collection CD , more pics on my blog .



Lou: I have used one paper and oodles of embellies from the Octavia CD/download to create my card for this challenge. I had a great time fussy cutting all the pieces; it was so relaxing and rewarding. More photos can be found on my blog ...
