Polly Crafts Challenge # 1

Hi everyone, hope you've had a good day.

Im excited to tell you all about a new challenge blog that launched today that my good friend Tracy is part of the Design Team.

The first challenge has a little twist to it ~ which makes it more fun

There's a fabulous prize this week called

She is just the cutest teddy ever - so if you fancy a challenge pop over and take a peek and whilst your there take a look at all the wonderful cards by the DT - why to go girls !!!
Well I only have a few of Paula's wonderful downloads and nothing appropriate for this challenge so I just had to pop over and buy this cutie download - I couldn't resist, lol

And whilst I was there I had to order some of her new range of fabulous stamps too - I know you say - more stamps !! but they are cute.... and now I can play along again, lol
Well here's my card, I kept it simple - to keep the limelight away from this cute bear !!!
I cut the away the greeting around the image as I started to use a 12 x 12 card and realised the image would be too big - dooh !!!! Anyway I think it turned out ok.
He's been decoupaged - but its not clear in the pic.

I glittered the embossing which was a new technique for me - thanks to the wonder Pat at my local craft store. I painted on the liquid glue - let it dry so it went sticky (about 15mins) and then sprinkled Glamour Glitter over it - that easy !!!
