Digi Choosday Challenge – Reds, Oranges & Browns!

Good morning!  Hope all is well with you and yours!

It’s Choosday which means it’s time for a new challenge over at DIGI CHOOSDAY and our theme this week is Reds, Oranges & Browns! Oooh the gorgeous colours of the season! As always we have a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out the BLOG for details and as it is also DISCOUNT DAY you need to grab the code to get a COLOSSAL reduction in the POLKADOODLES SHOP! But be quick, it’s a limited time offer!!

My card this week is for another brother that has the audacity to have a wedding anniversary coming up!! I mean really!!  The colours of this challenge are perfect as my brother and his wife were married in November in the amazing setting of Stowe School grounds. They have some fab photos taken of them in front of a backdrop of amazing autumn shades.  I don’t think any peacocks were present but I do love this image from the wonderful DOLLIE DAYDREAM GOES EAST so I used it.
I printed the image twice onto Neenah Desert Storm card, flipping one so that they faced each other, forgoing the usual peacock colours to fit the challenge.  I used a pen to dot over the background to break up the ‘blankness’ of it, an idea I wish I hadn’t had after losing the will to live halfway through!!
Image and sentiment: DOLLIE DAYDREAM GOES EAST
Card: Neenah Desert Storm - Kraft – Stash stuff
Dies: Tattered Lace ‘Large Decorative Rectangles’ – Tonic ‘Nesting Hearts’
Punches: EK Success Heart
Others: Gems

So don’t ‘Fall’ over as you make your way to THE BLOG , kicking through those autumn leaves as you go, and join in with our fab challenge.   And check out the STORE  too but don’t forget it’s…
