Seeing SPOTS . . .

Hello Everyone!
It's time for a new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters!

'Sistah' Terri is our hostess today and she has chosen the theme

 (embossed dots, dotted paper, dotted ribbon, etc)

WOW What a fun time I had creating this card!
Of course I started with finding the background dotted paper I wanted to use and trust me ... I had a lot of papers to go through before I made my choice!  But then I thought all these happy colors would make a fabulous birthday card for children and adults alike!  Then everything else fell into place after that!

The ribbon and metal dots I've had for AGES!!  It was so nice to use them today!
My sentiment banner is popped up with 3M dimensional tape to add a little extra pizazz!

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
My 'sistahs' have created some fabulous creations to help inspire you ... be sure to pop over and check them out!  You have until November 5th to join in the fun!!
