Dear Ones~
This time over at Double D the challenge is anything POLKA DOTS. How FUUUUN!!! Here is the Mood Board for our inspiration, just look at all those DOTS:
 And this is what I came up with:
I just love this Curved Floral Banner die from Gina K and I haven't used it for awhile. This time I inlaid all the spaces with different polka dot patterned paper. It was a little fussy, but I enjoy doing it. Kinda like working a puzzle and I find it very relaxing. I cut the shape with gold metallic paper first and then pasted it on a blank die cut. It was fun.

The Ingredients:
Recollections Gray Cardstock
GKD White Cardstock
GKD Curved Floral Banner Die
Pebbles Basic Patterned Paper
Tim Holtz Gold Metallic Paper
Martha Steward Border Punch
SU Teeny Tiny Wishes



If you head on over to the  Double D Challenge Blog and play along, you could win this absolutely darling little mini stencil. I just love it!!!  Also, don't forget to check out all the beautiful cards the other designers have created.

 Until next time dear readers, ASPIRE to be INSPIRED. 
Here's celebrating your CREATIVE MUSE!!

  2. Beautifully created with the gold outline and all the pretty paper piecing, another masterpiece!!

  3. WOW ! Beautiful paper pieced creation! May have been fussy but it sure is impressive!! Well done my friend ... beautiful inspiration!

  4. I have used this die a few times, but I really need to take a lesson from you and cut it in gold. This really rocks and using the inlaid polka dot paper is over the top creative. I love that you put it on a white background with the polka dot papers around it. Super impressive.
