Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago, Jana challenged us to create something with polka dots. It didn't matter how you used them. . .paper, ribbon, stamping, just use polka dots. So here is what I came up with. I used Amy's Super Sketch Sunday sketch for the card. (yay, she brought it back!) Her only stipulation with the sketch is that you use 3 different patterns of paper. I thought it would be fun to combine the two challenges. The striped pattern breaks up all the polka dots a little. The doggie is from Rainy Day Friends. I thought it would be cute to make him the focal point of a card. This card is on it's way to Jessie, so I hope she likes it! Have you played along with our Prettie Girl Challenges? If so, I'd love for you to post a link here so I can see your creation!
