Pollycraft Monday Challenge #72 - Chipboard...

Good Morning
Bbbbbrrrrr it's cold....we've had more snow through the night so it's another day indoors for me.  I refuse to move the car, it's rear wheel drive and totally useless in the snow. 
I had planned to take my mum out...41 years ago today my parents married and so wish Dad's here to celebrate.  It was snowing all those years ago too...

I've made my mum a card, a little bit of a different style for me.  I've used Pink Paislee Sweetness papers, various flowers, diamante pins, pearls, Cat's Life Press stamp...all of which I stock in my store.
I stamped the butterflies, added crackle glaze and then stickles.

I followed the sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday...


Onto the Pollcraft challenge and the theme this week was chosen by Sheena which is:-


The prize for one lucky winner is a £10 voucher to spend at the fabulous Creative Cottage.

For my card I have used one the gorgeous Sonny images...My Buddy. 
The Sonny range is now available to purchase in the NEW Pollycraft Shop as clear stamps - you can see them HERE.
My chipboard elements are the butterflies and flower which I stamped with the 'Armour' Cat's Life Press my store HERE.

The papers are again Pink Paislee ''Sweetness'', various flowers, organza ribbon...again all available in my store.

How do you fancy a $20 voucher to spend in Mo's Digital Pencil Store??!!
Mo has so very kindly donated the voucher to help me raise more funds....thank you Mo:-)

Is it worth a £1 donation to the YAA??!!
Well if you think it is then here are the rules - we gotta have rules as Al Murray Says!!

2 - Post about my candy on your sidebar and link to my blog

***Would you like an extra entry/entries??!!***

I hope all that makes sense.
