~ Stripes and Polka-Dots ~ City Crafter challenge guest designer

Happy Tuesday to you!

I'm here today as guest designer for City Crafter challenge blog for this week using stripes and polka-dots. ~FUN~

I accented the polka dots with some pearls.... 

Delicious webster's pages used on this card.

 and one more card in these same colors.........


Cute little vintage image from Crafty Secrets. Posies I picked up at the craft store...... a huge bundle for just a dollar. Yay! :)

I love making card sets.
Now hop back to the City Crafter blog to check out the other pretty samples there, and also to see the *original* card I made for the challenge (and actually was far from satisfied with, hence these extra two) Thank you Kirsty and all the other city crafters for inviting me to join you this week!!!

Hope you'll have time to make something pretty with stripes-and-polka-dots, and share it with us too. Link up on the City Crafter blog....... we'd love to have you join us.
