Going dotty for spotties

I absolutely adore polka dots in any colour or shape and all 5 of the cards I made on Saturday have spots somewhere on them! Not completely planned to turn out like that, but that's what I ended up choosing! LOL

Anyway these are just 3 of the cards I made and this first one is for SC380 for the sketch and Friday Mashup's Challenge #54 to use the colours from your favourite Muppets characters and/or make a kids card. I just used the colours this week and didn't mash it up. The Muppets were one of my fave TV programmes when I was little and still have the Kermit cuddly toy I got for my 7th birthday. OK he's a bit battered and lives in the attic, but I could never get rid of him! I chose this picture of Kermit and Miss Piggy's wedding as my inspiration and used the pink, green, black and white for my colours.


And here's the card I came up with.

My next card is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #3 for April, Just Add Ink's Challenge #113 to use the inspiration photo - I used the colours they chose from it as it was such a gorgeous colour combo! I'm also entering this one in to Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #212 to use spring flowers and Cupcake Crafts Challenge #187 Spring is in the Air. I thought spring fresh flowers would fit both these challenges. You can kind of tell in the photo but I pulled out my Vanilla Mist Smooch spray to give my card base a little bit of a shimmer and it looks really lovely IRL.

And my last card for this post is for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #93 and Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #119 to use these colours. Love the dark contrast of the Concord with the peach and pink!


And here's my card.

And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by.

  10. Oh you stamped some beautiful dotted and floral backgrounds this weekend, Vannessa! I love the Say It with Style card-the colors are so pretty, and that die cut is a perfect choice with the shape of your flower images! Your Verve card has such colors, too...so springy! And what's not to love about a card inspired by Kermit and Ms. Piggy...must have been challenging incorporating those colors but you did it just right ;)!
