Codi Stylin'

This is officially one of my fav cards to date. The more keen eyed among you will see that I used the same colours to colour Codi as I did my mom's Mother's Day card. Don't know why, as I struggled for backing paper then too.

Anyway, I did my typical thing and sat and had a colouring night not really thinking about what papers I would use, just having fun. On my blunder round blog land the other day I saw that someone had used some of the sweetest papers from Creative Cottage and that she had bought them from Pollycraft, so of I went. Imagine my surprise when I saw a pack of Monkey Pirate papers in the colours I had coloured Codi. It was like someone had created the pack just for moi! So, the paper pack fell into my basket and voila! here is my card.

I followed the sketch for this week's Passion for Promarkers challenge (albeit not very well) to create my second DT application card for Pollycraft. Paula, if you read this can we have a boy to go with Codi, I have a couple of 10 year olds that would suit that image down to the ground!

PS The image was a freebie, head on over to Paula's Pollycraft blog if you want to nab it.
