Create and Craft Sample - Polkadoodles - Octavia Frosted Winter

Hi did you see the show on Create and Craft featuring the new CD from Polkadoodles called Octivia Frosted Winter. OMG the samples fom the team where out of this world. if you missed it you can catch it on Create and Craft website.
The Cd is available to purchase also from Polkadoodles store HERE
For this sample I decided to use one of the Chalk Board Sentiments on the CD. There is so much on it that you can make amazing cards not only from the images but from the sentiments.
I kept this the Black and White theme matting the sentiment with white and a layer of silver for bling. I have used  a embossing folder on the strip, some Black sheer Ribbon. Pins to embellish and some Black gems. kept the layout very simple .
A quick card but I think you will agree an effective one.
Thanks for popping by i will have some more samples shortly.

Hi Sue, your card is really beautiful. However to be eligible for our challenge at Passion for Promarkers you must use Letraset pens on your creation (i.e. promarkers, flexmarkers, tria markers etc). Unfortunately it doesn't look like you've used any of these on your wonderful card, therefore you will not be entered into our prize draw. Of course if I am mistaken please let me know (denisemorgans@aol.com). Have a lovely day. Hugs, Denise (PFP DT) x x
