Now let's see what wonderful inspiration the Design Team have for you this week.
The DT's twist on the challenge theme is to add some flowers.
and if you want to join in with that theme then go for it :-)

Ruth:  I made this card for a work colleague who was moving teams - she actually does look like the image!  I've used Work and Play Vol 11 for the image, papers and various elements plus the Bubbleicious Frame and flowers die.


Helen - I decided to reach for some real stamping so what better than those beautiful Daisydays stamps just so pretty. You can find them right HERE in the store. I had a messy playtime using brushos stamped my flowers and a butterfly on the top and cut them out and arranged them on some kraft card.

Alysha ~ This week our DT theme is Flowers here I have coloured in WINNIE SUGAR SPRINKLES SHARING IS CARING with Spectrum Noir Markers and added her to a background created in Craft Artist using items from DAISY DAYS CD ROM hugs Aly xx

Lisa - I have used papers and elements from the Belle Papillon Big Kahuna Download, along with an Elegant Flourish die cut. 


Karon - I am in the middle of making a little set of cards.  This card measures just 4" by 4".  I decided to add some glossy accents to the flower and the teeny butterfly.  I used Helga Hippo Collection and Design Sheet 5 from the collection, which can also be bought as part of  Design Sheet 3 Duo Download, if you prefer HERE :-)  I also added a flourish behind the flower, using the wonderful Flower Flourish Die.

Carol - I used the one of the very cute stamps from the Little Darlings range of Polkadoodles stamps, namely the Collectors edition boxed set: Winnie Sugar Blossoms Stamp and Paper kit, available for pre-order here. I stamped my image and then coloured her with Copics. I also used a background paper from the Winnie Fruit Punch Paper Heaven 2 collection.

Pauline - I have created a shabby chic style card using the beautiful Polkadoodles Belle Papillon Vintage CD Rom.  I used a topper from the Amazingness Collection, two Papers from the Paper Collection and a sentiment from the Sentiments & Alphas Collection.  I printed the topper several times so that I could add some decoupage layers.


creativEle - For this challenge I created a simple card using PRIMROSE digi, colored with my favorite pencils.


Lots of fabulous creations to inspire you.

Ruth:  I've gone with Work and Play Vol 12 and used various different elements from the design sheet plus a wooden stick and some die cut silver stars.  The Design sheets are great - print out, cut out the elements and then move them around for different combinations until you're happy with the layout!


Alysha ~ This week at Polkadoodles the DT are “Using a design sheet for our inspiration, here I have used Starfish and Sandcastles Design Sheet 11 hugs Aly xx


Helen - So excited this is the first time I've used Helga the Hippo, she's just adorable. I've used parts of two of the design sheets in the Helga Hippo collection that you can buy in pairs. Here's the ones I used http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/helga-hippo-design-sheet-13-duo-download/. They're just so versatile and Helga is a must for any project. I made a stepper card from the design sheets and added a couple of those fabulous dies from Nikky. The cherry blossom branch to make the tree and the door to make a shed, which I used a paper from the Starfish and Sandcastles collection as its such groovy wood.


Karon - My eldest Daughter is just finishing her first year at college, to be a Veterinary Technician.  I couldn't resist using the Design sheet from the Work & Play 12 collection. You can buy the whole collection HERE or as a Mini Vet/Dog Groomer/Cat Grooming Bundle, where you get the female and male vets, and lots of other goodies too :-)  This Z fold card is to wish her luck in her 2nd Semester exams - and then she will be home for the summer months :-) Yay :-)
Pauline - I have created a card using a design sheet from the adorable Twiggy & Toots Collection.  I used the decoupage image - I love my fussy cutting.  The sentiment, papers and flowers all come from the collection.  I also used the largest of the Elegant Nest Dies and the Flower Flourish Die.


Lisa - I've made a card using one of the Helga design sheets that you can download from a set of two here.


Carol - Today I have used Design Sheet 4  from Winne Sugar Sprinkles collection.

Now onto the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.

Tina - First I painted the stalk of a big brush first white and then I decorated with many ribbons and lace. Then I glued a few flowers and small beads on it. After then I colored the small "Cleaning Lady" with Polycolor by Lyra and placed on the brush in the scene. A little glitter and a few metal charms round off the work.


Bev here with my cute little 6 x 6 card using a combination of papers & flowers from Lemonade Fizz & the leaves from Bubbleicious Frame. I created a little patchwork background with faux stitching and then wrapped my ribbon around before adhering the shaped flowers & leaves.


AnjieI used a circle die to create and circular easel card. I used lots of elements from the Winnie in Wonderland collection on this card. This really is one of my all time favourite collections in case you hadn't noticed! I used the small frame die from the Bubbleicious Frames die set to cut out Sydney the White Rabbit. I fussy cut all the embellies and mounted them onto the card using 3D foam. I added some extra interest with the sprig die and the flowers 2 dies. Finally I used some crushed silk ribbon and a jewelled gem to finish it all off.



Scatty Jan - I decided on a box with a matching card  for my project this week.  I used a mixture from the Belle Papillon, Bella Fleur, Dies, Stamps and Papers all can be found here. I doubled up some of the butterflys and flowers for depth. Added a little lace to the box to finish.




Claire C - I've made a card using some of Nikky's beautiful stamps and dies. The papers are from the Belle Papillon Collection and the flowers are stamps from the beautiful Bella Fleur A5 Stamp set . I've die cut the flowers using the Flower Bunch Doublet Die and layered them up with 3d foam pads over the gorgeous Elegant Nest die cuts.

Michelle - For my project this week I decided to use the brand new The Darling Buds Crocus Image I just love these images can't get enough of them. Anyone that tries these image is going to wont more of them.
