Seeing Spots

This week, Paper Smooches SPARKS has their "picture perfect" challenge, and this is the inspiration photo:



Cupcake roses -- how brilliant is that? So of course my card has neither flowers nor cupcakes. Instead, I took my inspiration from the polka dots and the blue.



Lots of dots! Why yes, that is Target washi tape. Welcome to Canada, Target -- and it's true, I did mostly check out a new store in order to see if their tapes had come to Canada. The red panel is embossed with dots as well, and even this happy puppy is spotted. His nose and eye got some enamel accents, while his collar received some glossy accents. (I think Polaroid could be revived if they came out with three-dimensional photos -- as my puppy is, popping off the background -- don't you?)
With slightly better odds than the average lottery, I'm also entering this card in the current Simon Says Stamp "Anything Goes" challenge.


       

Supplies: white & Stampin' Up real red cardstock, Recollections patterned paper, Paper Smooches Woofers and Tweeters & Birthday Buddies stamps, Memento tuxedo black & Stampin' Up real red inks, Prismacolor pencils, Lil' Inkers instant camera die, Spellbinders large circle die, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Target washi tape, pop-dot tape

Pin It Now!

I love it! The blue spots on the pup are sweet - and I love where the inspiration took you :) Just a little jelly about the Target - we will have one in the region, but not yet. Fingers crossed they bring us washi too!

I love this! The polaroid frame and that Target tape is fabulous. We're getting our own Target in a few months and I can't wait to see the place :)

LOL about the 3D Polaroids like the puppy. Very true! This card is fantastic--I love the dog and the washi(yes, Target washi is a must-have), and the polka dot paper. This is so good, Linds. :)
