Commissioned Birthday Card

I was asked to make an extra special card for someone who loves purple and burgundy.  Yikes - I don't think I've put these colours together but I think they go quite well.

Over at the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog they are celebrating their 3rd birthday - congratulations!!!  The challenge this week is "add doodling as a border or element" and as it is their 3rd birthday it has to be a birthday card or project for them.  For my card I have used three different backing papers and an image from the Pretty Sweet Polkadoodles CD.  I have used my new Marianne's Designs corner die.  After cutting out I kept the die in place and coloured with chalk and then sprayed with Crafter's Companion Irridescent Glitter.  I have finished the card off with lace, pearls, doodling, hat pins, flowers, buttons and Craftwork Cards sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Totally Gorjuss - Something new (new die, hat pins and buttons)
Party Time Tuesday - Anything goes
Scrapbook Sisters - Anything goes
Simon Says - Anything goes
Hotshot Crafts - Die-cuts
Hooked on Crafts - All that glitters
Die Cuttin' Divas - Anything goes
