Polkadoodle Challenge

This week's challenge is so much fun!...make your own embellishments! Trust me, I've seen lots of tutorials lately for making all kinds of flowers and I couldn't get any of them to come out looking like a flower-LOL! I went back to my tried and true. I punch 1" and 1 1/2" circles and then used some decorative-edge scissors on the edges.

I always love how these turn out and they look great with my focal point for this card - an awesome image from Nikky's new CD - Sundae of Seasons. The scarecrow is from the fall collection and I just love the plaid backing paper (of course, I love plaid of any kind).

I finished up with some stickers, self-adhesive gems, and a little doodling. Please use the link over on the right side and join us this week for our challenge to make you own embellishments. I'm betting you have fun with this too!
