Heart2Heart Challenge

Good morning everyone!  This morning's post is all about our challenge over at Heart2Heart - use either polka dots or stripes in your creation.  OR take it up a notch and use BOTH! 

I decided to make a card using our fabulous, exclusive Dotty for You paper pack.

I also decided to use both polka dots AND stripes in my card.  Here it is:


I cut a mat from our Sweet Leaf cardstock and used an embossing folder that I ran through my Sizzix Texture Boutique to create the "stripes" on the background.  I cut out six squares of the Dotty for You paper at 1 1/2".  I then edged the Sweet Leaf CS and each square with Sweet Leaf ink to give it a little extra texture. 

The butterflies were cut out using our amazing Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  You can find these butterflies on page 41, C1, shift, < Bttrfly1 > cut at 1/2".  The sentiment shape can be found on page 25, A5, < Rctngle4 > cut at 2 1/2" x 4 1/2".  The "Happy Birthday" stamp actually is in one of the stamp sets that comes with the Art Philosophy bundle.

I hope you like my polka dots and stripes themed card.  We would love to have you join us over at Heart2HeartJust follow the rules below and then leave your link at that blog.

* All links must be to artwork that fits the challenge for the week and
