Polkadoodles Challenge - Thank You

Good Morning and Happy New Year! Welcome to the first Polkadoodles challenge of the year as well. This one is a really easy one for you - make a thank you project! I'm sure you will need to make some thank you cards for all those lovely Christmas gifts you received if you celebrated it! i know I did!

Anyway here is my card using a hexagon shaped card base. I have to admit I really didn't think about how I was going to decorate these bases when I bought them from a craft fair in November; I just liked them as they were different, so it took lots of folding and trimming the patterned paper down to get the right-ish shape and size. I don't think it looks too bad though, but might try something different next time.

I used the adorable Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Just For You for this card as I thought a bouquet of flowers is always a lovely way to say thank you! I used patterned papers from the Winnie Wednesday Halloween Collection as well. I thought the colours in these ones went really well with the colours I used to colour the image and were ones I already had printed. 

This card is also for

  2. What a lovely card you have made here Vannessa which fits perfectly the Colour Crazy Challenge this week. I know what you mean about buying decorative card blanks and them proving a nightmare to decorate. I think more now before buying. Thank you for entering and best wishes in the draw.
