Polkadoodles Birthday Card

Hi everyone hope you are all keeping well.  I've been playing with my Sundae of Seasons CD by Polkadoodles.  A work colleague wanted a card for her grandson's 10th birthday so I thought I'd delve in and see what images I could play with.  Nikki at Polkadoodles designs such lovely things, she also has a new Magical Winter CD out which looks amazing.  It's on my wish list for my Christmas cards.
I did what she said and used good quality super white paper and the colours printed out really well I think.  Great tip Nikki.
The lady at work also wanted special words on the inside so just used a normal Word document for this and added the ladybug image to co-ordinate with the outside.  All of Nikki's images are in PDF format and can be easily copied to another programme using the Adobe Snapshot tool.
Everything apart from the background paper, which is K&Company, was printed from Nikki's CD.  I just cut them all out with scissors and layered them up for a 3D effect.   Some Glossy Accents was added to enhance his eyes, the stars and the spots on the ladybug.  I love this stuff but you have to allow plenty of time as it takes up to 4 hours to dry properly but it's worth the wait.

Hope you liked the card.  Thanks for popping by. Lolo xx
