Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
Another week has gone by and can't believe that February starts on Saturday.  I swear the years go by quicker and quicker as I get older.  This February is rather a big one for me as I celebrate a big (50) birthday on February 28th.  Keep your eyes peeled over the next week or two for a little candy giveaway to celebrate.  

As it is Wednesday I am here to let you know about the new challenge starting over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Spots and Dots

We have three great sponsors joining us this week
StampArt Design - prize of 5 digi images to the winner
DeeDees Digis - prize of 3 digi images to the winner
Digital Delights - prize of a $5 gift voucher

Here is my inspiration project using a fab image from DeeDees design.

The image is called Cup of Joy and comes in both uncoloured and coloured versions.  I decided to go with the coloured version.  I simply cut it out using my scalloped die, added some distress ink through the die and glittered all the little flowers.  This was matted onto a piece of white card that I embossed with a lattice embossing folder.  The dotty paper is from Pink Gem Designs and I used purple coredinations card for all the matting.  The ribbon and flower were from my stash and I added a punched butterfly.  I decided to make this a get well card using a sentiment from Craftwork Cards.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges to enter the challenge.  Don't forget to check out the gorgeous creations from my teamies.
