DT CC Spots & Stripes

Good morning everyone!!  It's Friday and that can only mean it's time for my DT post for Crafty Catz, and for once my post is not scheduled because I have the day off work!

Of course looking out of my window it's cold, grey and raining lol, but I don't care because not only do I have the day of work (in fact I have no work now until Wednesday)  I'm going to see the Cirque du Soleil tonight!! I'm sooo excited as I've been wanting to see them for years and never managed to ge tickets before for one reason or another and actually the tickets have been stuck to the front of my fridge for almost a year.........I wasn't missing out this time lol.

Anyhoo on to the challenge....

This week it's the wonderful Anna who chooses, (she is always making me smile with her fun comments in our DT blog)  and Anna chose 'SPots and Stripes'  Very easy, you just have to have some spots and some stripes somewhere on your card.  This could be on the image, design paper, the way you've coloured, the ribbon, embellishments you can see it should be easy to get some spots and stripes on there somewhere :)
This week we are being spobsored by Crimson Cloud and they are offering a prize to our winner.

This is my take on the challenge I chose some beautiful Maja Design paper that hade spots on one side and stripes on the other but after I made it I realised that I'd actually got more spots on my card than I'd realised.   Can you (pardon the pun) spot them all? :P

I used a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Edge set to make the shape.

The image is by the wonderful Krista Smith from Saturated Canary (and she's actually sponsoring our challenge in 2 weeks (which also happens to be my first time hosting the challenge!), so keep an eye out for that).  She called Ribbons Fairy and is available here. I've coloured her with my Copics.

Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, lace and ribbon from The Ribbon Girl and the sentiment is by Whimsy and cut with a matching die, both of which I got from Bunny Zoe crafts.  The pearl trim and the paper came from Live & Love Crafts.

This is the inside of the card, sorry for the terrible lighting I didn't have enough space to set up the 2nd light as I'm moving and tidying stuff ready for my daughter's visit at the weekend, I'll try and replace it later.

This card is available for sale in my Etsy shop

Well that's it for now, do pop over to the Crafty Catz blog and see the wonderful designs the other girls have made and give them some love. 

Have a fab day :) xx
