Spots And Dots

Good morning everyone, it's Friday again and the week disappeared really quickly - I can't believe it's almost the weekend!
As it's Friday, we have a new challenge over at Polka Doodles which has been chosen by team mate Miria. She would like to see your creations with Spots & Dots. It's also our stashbox stamps week so my card has quite a few stamps from my stash as I decided on a collage style effect. As you'll see, if you stamp directly on the background paper, you'll get lots of interest without adding too much weight to the card.

I've chosen a very chic paper to go with the lovely image of 2 ladies relaxing with a drink and the scene always seems to have a French flavour so where better to put them than Paris.
The lovely dotty paper is from the Paper Boutique Vol 3 CD and I stamped this with the Eiffel Tower and Paris text by B Line Designs and a dotty stamp by Great Impressions. I used VersaFine Smokey Gray ink which is softer then black and inked the edges with a brown ink pad.
I stamped the ladies (Art Impressions) with the same grey ink and added them to a mat of kraft card. I finished off with pretty border with stripes and dots from the A Double Sprinkle Of Kraft CD.

Don't forget to pop over and look at the Design Team inspiration as our new team members have joined in this week and there are loads of lovely creations on show.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
Delightful Challenges - Use Digital Paper
More Than Favors - Travel
My Time To Craft - Here Come The Girls
The Stamping Boutique - Stripes & Dots
The Paper Variety - Travel

Have a lovely weekend,
Fliss xx
