Polly Put The Kettle On!

Happy Sunday all!
It's about that time so I'm about to sit down, have a cuppa & take five!
This week at The Crafty Pad the theme is to Make a Type of card. e.g. Spring Card, Acetate Card, Stepper Card,Rocker Card,Shadow Box Card.....
the list is endless & it's up to you which you make.
We are kindly sponsored this week by

I made a wiper card!

The image I have used is Polly With Poodle.
She reminds me of my niece Sarah when she was small!
We used to visit at the weekend & spend the long summer days out in the country
with her & her Gran who had a variety of poodles.
I coloured the image with promarkers & cut out with a nestie as you do!
The card is made using one sheet of cardstock & one sheet of 6x6in DP
plus some coloured paper for matting.

I'm not sure who the DP is by as it was part of a candy I won as was the punched lace border.
I assembled the card using high tack DST to hold the front & back together 
& to attach the little wiper with the butterfly on! 
The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch, 
I punched out two & layered them one on top of the other to give a little dimension.

I added a couple of gems to give accent to the butterfly & around the image!
I do hope you like little Polly & her poodle!
Please do join in the challenge at The Crafty Pad this week! 
We're so looking forward to seeing all the different types of cards you come up with!
