Who doesn't like Polka Dots?

 Hello Friends ...

I spotted a challenge over at the Cupcake Inspirations Blog
and just had to play along.  Here's their board this time around . . .


I actually thought I had some Minnie Mouse elements that I would be able to use but turns out all I had was Micky so went a different direction.  I had recently purchased a few 3D stickers at Hobby Lobby and noticed the one snowman had a red polka dot umbrella ... perfect!

I went to my various 6x6 paper packs which I knew some had polka dots and others had stripes and here's what I came up with.  As I mentioned, the snowman is a 3D sticker by the Paper Studio.   To showcase him I die cut this beautiful old Memory Box 'Frostyville Wreath' (#98418) twice ... once in black and once in white then fit them together for the center of my card.


I hope your week is off to a good start! 
Cold and Snowy here in NE Ohio but it is January so to be expected!  LOL
