The Challenge #32


Yipppeee...it's Monday! Wishing you a wonderful week...I have one card to share today for The Challenge #32 - Polka Dots. I love polka dots, so fun to wear and fun to stamp with. I do not have any polka dot stamps so I used a journaling card from PTI and used it to make a stencil out of card stock and to my surprise it worked like a dream. Hoping you will find some time to play along with us this week. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy your week!

  3. This is wonderful. Great idea for a home made stencil. But, no polka dots????Really, we need to take you shopping. Love how you have achieved different shades and gradations in your stenciled background.

  4. Love your resourcefulness! Doesn't it feel good to come up with an alternative option...at a budget price! Not surprised though, because the sky is the limit with your creativity!

    I likely don't have to say it (cuz you know how I feel) but...love the cool, stencilled polka dot background! Great sentiment - seems to follow the shape/direction of the pretty tulips :)
