My Final Polka Doodles GDT Card. Looking For Santa!!

Good morning folks. Apologies for my absence over the past couple of weeks, but real life has got in the way of crafting and blogging! As the title of this post suggests, this is my last GDT card for Polka Doodles :( so I'd like to take the time to thank Nikki and the rest of the team for having me. It's been fun :D

The challenge this week is Through The Window, so we want to see your aperture cards. I totally loved this challenge cos it meant that I got to use one my new dies and some un-inked stamps (shhhh don't tell, but I treated myself to some new stash).  :D

I die cut the window and then mounted it onto an inked scene before placing it onto the stepper card. I've used Cory from the Pretty Tuff CD by Polka Doodles and altered it by hand to suit my scene. I've used Promarkers to colour in and have added some Flower Soft to the brim of the hat and the bobble.
