Papertake Weekly Spots and Stripes
Well we made it through Monday! That's always a good thing! LOL! We had fabulous spring weather this past weekend. A little windy, but nice temps. The whole family got out Sunday for a walk around our local marina. Which is nice cause I need to get up off this duff and start getting some exercise! LOL! Well that's enough about my hiney....It's time for a new challenge at Paptertake Weekly, and we're being sponsored by The Ribbon Girl. The new challenge is to use spots and/or stripes. Well if you love polka dots like I do, then this isn't a challenge at all! LOL! For my card today, I used this ADORABLE Tossa by Bildmalarna stamp that I got from Bunny Zoe's Crafts. Tossa is colored with Copic markers. And boy howdy did I ever pull out my Cricut Expression for this card! LOL!
The shaped card was cut from Wild Card, the clouds were cut from Hello Kitty, and the fence was cut from My World. I used my Gypsy to weld three of the fences together at the height I wanted. I do so love my Gypsy. (Thanks so much Jody!!) I added lots of doodling to add to the whimsical feel of the card. The clouds are edged with some chalk ink for definition. The cardstock is Bazzill and the DP is Nitwits digital. (sorry can't remember which collection). And the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts of course. I had to add a little bit of machine stitching in there too. I've had that pink ribbon for so long that I honestly can't remember where it came from. It might be Stampin Up, but I'm not sure.
So that's it for me today. Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to see all the fabulous creations by the rest of the Design Team. Then we'd really love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and join us using your spots and/or stripes! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
