It's All About the Spots and Stripes

Hi Folks
Halfway through the working week but my last day at work till next Wednesday.  It has been an intense four weeks since I started my new job but feel I have got to grips with it.  Certainly a busy job but the days pass by so quickly.  Really looking forward to my weekend away though.

Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Spots and Stripes
You can enter any project you like but we do need to see both spots and stripes.

We have two great sponsors joining us this week:
StampArt Design - prize of 5 digi images to the winner
Fred She Said - prize of a $15 gift certificate

Here is my inspiration project using a super christmas image from Fred She Said.

I cut out the main image and matted onto some green cardstock.  This was then matted onto some polka dot paper and more green card.  I cut out an extra image of each poinsettia and glittered them before sticking them on to add dimension.  I also added some glossy accents to the holly berries and the centre of the flowers.  The green ribbon and button finished the card.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
CHNC Extra - Anything goes
Disdigidesigns - Stripes or checks
Crafty Boots - Anything goes
Crafty Girls - Anything goes
Sister Act - Anything goes
Sweet Stampin - Ribbons and bows
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes
