Less is More - Polka Dots

A new challenge at Less is More

This week we have a really easy recipe which is simply
As long as your design is Clean and Simple, has some white space (or its equivalent) and polka dots in evidence somewhere, it will be perfect for this challenge.

For my card I covered my base with some cream textured paper (I'm going to be in sooo much trouble with Chrissie and Mandi!) with a polka dot ribbon wrapped around.  Made 3 flowers from Mariannes English Rose die set. Cut out 2 leaves from same set and a Tim Holtz swirl, added some cinnamon stickles for a bit of glam!

Make My Monday/ PaperPlay

A new challenge at Make My Monday
This week the challenge is to create an autumnal card using the colours
There is also an optional extra to make your creation with a HALLOWEEN theme.

and at PaperPlay.....
Our challenge this week gives a nod in the direction of the upcoming festivities - "Use Black in your card/project". Now you don't have to do something Hallowe'eny for this, some of our DT have, some haven't - just let's see the colour black somewhere on your project.
 For my card I stamped a tree from Creative Expressions - Church and embossed in gold onto the black base card.  I masked a moon and stippled orange and green shades from Big and Juicy Spice, then stamped tree and horse and carriage from Chocolate Baroque Howling Moon set.  Mounted onto orange Core'dinations.
