PollyCraft DT Call

 Paula at Pollycraft is looking for new DT members.  How could I not give this a try?  We were given two of the Friday freebies to work with, and see what we could come up with.
I fell in love immediately!
The requirement was that you only had to use one of the images, but I just had to do both.  Yeah I know, not necessary, but that's just how I am. 
The first one I'm going to show you is soooo cute.  This little duck with a big cupcake.  I decided to make this card very pastel.  Perfect for a baby, or a 1 year old's birthday.  Using 4 different colors, it could be used for either boy or girl.  Personally I would give it to a girl, simply because the flower is pink. LOL

The next card I have to show you, is the adorable little Codi.  She's a little bit Goth, don't you think?  Now considering the fact that I'm really not into the Gothic thing, I had to ask my son to come give me tips on colors.  He was thrilled that I asked.  He starting saying "Oh Oh... That has to be black & purple or black & red" ha ha... So I went with both choices.  Here she is.

Notice the different color strips of hair?  Also my son's suggestion!  I followed his color choices to the letter!  ha ha.... I love it when I can ask a teenager about the new trends, they always come out with some crazy answers!  LOL
No I'm not old, I'm just not into this whole Teen Fashion statements these days... they're just WILD!  Not that the 80's weren't wild in their own right... LOL

Anyway, enough about that!
Both images on both cards were colored using Copics, and I did add a little bit of Twinkling H2O's to my duck.  A little guy like that just needs to shimmer I think.
The flowers are from Prima's "Got Flowers"  The DP's are all just from scraps and stash, I believe they are mostly DCWV. 

Thanks for stopping by, and taking a look.  Now I'm going to keep my fingers crossed. Deadline for the DT Call is Friday March 26th at Midnight.

Love both of your cards!!! I, too, look at the teen's of today and say, "What? Where did that fashion come from!?"
I am from the 80's and our fashions were "totally cool"!!!!:)
Good luck on the DT!!!
