Digi Choosday Crafting Challenge

Hello and welcome back!!  I am thrilled to be continuing as GDT over at Digi Choosday Challenge Blog!  I have been doing a ton of shopping at Polkadoodles Shop - Nikky's images are such fun to color and I love how the sets include papers, sentiments, embellies, etc - so great to be able to do all in one shopping!

As you know, Digi Choosday Challenge Blog features a New Challenge each Tues. and you have 2 weeks to play along, so we have our new challenge beginning today, but you also still have another week to play in last week's Embellish It challenge, so hope you will come play along with both!

Today's New Challenge is DIE CUTS/PUNCHES.  Make sure you read the rules on the right sidebar at Digi Choosday Challenge Blog so that you can play along.  Also, a new DISCOUNT is available for 24 hrs. once the new challenge posts at 8am BST, so make sure you take advantage of that!!

For my creation, I chose Octavia Friendly Hugs digi - I love this image, Octavia is stunning and her little fox friend is so adorable.  I had loads of fun coloring the image with my Copics, I adore all the scenery as well - the log, mushrooms, flowers and grass.  I used most of the papers - both printed and plain janes that can be found in the Octavia Moonfly Big Kahuna Download Bundle.  My card is a type of Z fold, I found a tutorial for a similar card from Pinterest, but altered the measurements to accommodate the image I chose.  I created a band to go around it when it's closed and added a sentiment, also from Octavia Moonfly Big Kahuna Download Bundle, that I printed on some of the pattern paper from the bundle and then cut out with Nestie die cut.  Additionally, I used Nestie die cuts for all of the flowers I have added - all the paper used for the flowers is digi paper from the Octavia Moonfly Big Kahuna Download Bundle.

Here is the card opened.  I also added a pearl and bling to the centers of 2 of the flowers.

Here's a closer view of this gorgeous image.  I hope you like all the colors I have chosen.  I did Octavia's dress with RV10, RV11, R81, RV32, RV34, R85 and R89.   I sure hope you like how it turned out.  Image is cut out with Sue Wilson die.

I sure hope you will come play along with us at Digi Choosday Challenge Blog.  Don't forget also to check out all the DT projects.  

Additionally, there's fun to be had and much inspiration to be gained over at Digi Choosday Facebook Group and Polkadoodles Facebook Group, so hope you will join both places if you haven't already, and if you have, pop by for a visit and come share your Polkadoodles creations!

Enjoy your day!  Many hugs!!
